I have the pleasure of working with a team of seasoned professionals who take care of 900 acres of park land and natural spaces and more than 25 city buildings and properties.

In my spare time, I love spending time at the beach, road trips with my husband, and spending quality time with my family and friends.
I am a Clerk 3 for Parks & Recreation. I work at the front desk helping customers register for classes, trips & tours, camps, or Maple Lawn Preschool, and provide reception for the City of Albany.
