Interests

Outdoor time with the family is a priority. Coaching and cheering on the soccer and baseball fields in our hometown of East Longmeadow; sailing, swimming and fishing in W. Falmouth, Cape Cod; hiking along the Laughing Brook in Hampden; these are some of our favorites.

I play a little guitar and whenever a campfire presents itself I might be heard trying to recreate an Avett Brothers or Ray Lamontagne song.

Cooking is another passion. Simple, fresh meals are my favorites. Tomatoes and cukes from the garden with some fresh fish, maybe some fresh pesto (basil from the garden) on a little pasta....not fancy, just fresh and delicious!

Community participation

I am a volunteer coach with East Longmeadow rec department and with Pioneer Valley Junior Soccer League.

I volunteer at Foodshare in Bloomfied, CT in support of that organization's remarkable efforts to end hunger in the greater Hartford area.

For our support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, Ameriprise is honored to be recognized as a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation
