How did you find out about Marlborough Juniors?

Reading about what they did around town in the newspaper

What convinced you to join?

Wanting to participate in community service in my home town

What positions have you held in club?

It’s hard to remember them all! Chair: arts, education, pr, various special projects, served as VP & President of MJWC and International Affairs Chairman and South Central District Nominating Representative on the GFWC Junior State Board.

What has been your favorite project(s) in club and why?

I really like Princess Boutique…not only is it a project we do, but we engage the whole community!

What do you like best about being a Marlborough Junior?

The community of supportive women and the hands on projects…I always joke Juniors isn’t an “evening gown and checks” charitable organization!

Has Marlborough Juniors contributed to your leadership skills and experience?

More than I can say! As a woman who was not working full time when I joined, Jrs allowed me to keep and learn meaningful new professional skills – especially in the areas marketing, communications and organization. I really credit Juniors for challenging me to learn new skills and lead to solve community problems.

Briefly describe the culture of Marlborough Juniors:

A diverse, and supportive group of women who are “doers”, and want to make their community a better place. Compassion is the overriding value that glues us together!

What is your “day job?” How (if at all) do the skills and/or connections from your job help Marlborough Juniors?

I write a travel website with my hubby- Goseeittravel.com and occasionally sub at a preschool.

What do you do in your spare time? Provide a fun fact about yourself.

When I was in 7th grade I won an environmental poster contest sponsored by the MJWC, and eventually served as President of the organization as an adult!

What is your guilty pleasure (TV show, sweet treat, etc.)?

Hagan Daaz coffee ice cream; a spoonful or two would be ok, but it’s that the spoon always seem to hit the bottom of the pint!

What are you passionate about?

travel

What is your dream vacation spot?

I have to pick just one? In the end, I belong in Maine!
