I currently reside in Palenville with my long-term boyfriend, “JR” Espel, and our two silly Dobermans. I grew up here in Greene County and could not imagine living anywhere else. I cherish the sense of community our county has and love to give back when I can. As a candidate for the Board of Education, I hope to give back to the Catskill Community for our students.
I have always prided myself on being a lifetime learner. After graduating from Coxsackie-Athens High School with my Advanced Regents Diploma, I went off to Buffalo to get my BA in Psychology. After graduation I moved back to Greene County, where I worked full-time and attended school full-time for my Masters in Business Administration. After acquiring my MBA in 2018, I decided to push a little further and am presently finishing up my Graduate Certification in Accounting.
I have a broad work history to include Empire Merchants North and the Department of Defense. Currently, I work for the Athens Generating Plant as the Business Manager. I oversee all business activities for the plant, to include: accounting, budgeting, forecasting, accounts payable, taxes, inventory, and human resources. I have worked with large dollar amounts and have successfully tracked numerous capital projects.
I am asking for your support on Election Day to use my business experience to manage the school budget while maintaining programs for our youth.
