My career with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) started in 2003, as a Civil Engineer in Warwick, Rhode Island. Since then, I have worked at the NRCS-Florida State Office in Gainesville, as Agricultural Engineer-Irrigation Specialist and Mobile Irrigation Lab Team Leader. I then returned to the NRCS-Rhode Island State Office as Assistant State Conservation Engineer. In 2012, I went to New Hampshire as State Conservation Engineer on the Leadership Team. Always having a strong interest in operations and the budget, I changed directions in my career and became the Assistant State Conservationist - Management & Strategy in New Hampshire in late 2014. I have served on a 120-day detail as Acting State Conservationist in New Hampshire while our State Conservationist went to Iowa. In 2017, I had the opportunity to participate in the Strategic Leadership Development Program through George Washington University and NHQ.


Prior to beginning my Federal service, I spent five years in the private sector working as a geotechnical engineer for a regional consulting firm, GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc. in both Boston, Massachusetts and Manchester, New Hampshire. I have a B.S. Degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Massachusetts and a M.S. Degree in Civil - Geotechnical Engineering from Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts.

I grew up in southeastern Massachusetts and now live in Lee, New Hampshire with my husband and three children, 9-year old identical twin girls and a 12-year old boy. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, being outdoors, skiing, hiking, traveling, and practicing yoga.


Although I have only been a member of WiN since September 2017, I quickly realized the value and importance of this organization. I have had the opportunity to assist the WiN National Council on our first initiative and develop the barrier survey this past year. During that time, I saw how this organization is truly making a positive impact for the women of our agency.I am fully committed to help making this initiative a success as well as seeking future opportunities to support WiN's mission by running for Vice President in 2019.
