My sister shares my house with me, and my 2 adult sons live in Portsmouth. I love gardening, music, birdwatching, neighborhood projects, and my neighbors!  I also enjoy problem-solving and working with the public. I look forward to serving my community and the State of New Hampshire as your State Representative.
