I grew up in Butler, Pennsylvania. I started my career by knocking on doors and working for a grassroots environmental organization. Then I managed five campaigns, served as the Virginia House and Senate Caucus Director, as a DCCC regional director, and then DLCC Executive Director for three cycles. I have been a political, communications and creative strategist ever since.
I have had so many! Delivering fresh eggs from my father's farm at age five.
I pride myself on working for the progressive community--labor unions, state employees, teachers, firefighters, people who work with their hands every day, Planned Parenthood, the Sierra Club. I also work for Democrats like US Senator Bob Casey and State Senators Barbara Favola and Jason Carter.
Set high standards and be the best. Know who you are and be true to that.
My daughter, because she knows no limits. My son, because he works so hard to be the best.
My family and I are committed to making a difference wherever we can. Our giving varies from providing monthly funding to an orphanage for fifty children in Sudan to being active contributors and volunteers in the Annandale community where we live.
