Working at FPS inspires me because: I can relate to the challenges that many families face in trying to juggle work, family, activities, and finances when both parents work. I enjoy helping them sort things out so that they can know that their goals and dreams are attainable.
When I’m not at FPS you can find me: At my kids’ baseball, basketball, soccer and ultimate Frisbee games. I also lead my son’s Boy Scout Troop on weekend adventures and in the strong values of Scouting. In the winter we like to downhill ski and in the summer we’ll spend a week at the ocean in Maine and time on Lake Winnisquam in NH. At the center of our family is our church in Newton, United Parish of Auburndale. It is a caring community where everyone is on their own faith-journey.
Most people don’t know: That I am a rail fan. Although I don’t get to do much of if right now, I enjoy watching these big machines and the important role that they have played in the growth and development of our country.
If I could spend one day with one person, past or present, it would be: Abraham Lincoln. Facing incredible challenges, I’d like to know how he faced and overcame one of the most divisive experiences the United States ever experienced.
