Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town?

I moved a bit as a kid. I was born in Connecticut and lived there until I was in 3rd grade and then lived in Ann Arbor Michigan until I was in 6th grade. From 7th grade- graduation I lived in a Maryland suburb of DC. I then went back to Ann Arbor Michigan for college 🙂 My husband and I moved to Milton in 2013


Child(ren) and Age(s)?

Scarlett just turned 6 


One thing people would be surprised to know about you…

I went to college with Tom Brady (well most of my friends know that)


What is your favorite thing about living in the area?

I love the mattapan trolley! It runs behind our house and it is a huge reason we moved to the area! I have been commuting to work in the city on it for 6 years. It is totally hidden gem and completely underutilized in this town. I can get from my front door to Park Street in 35 minutes.


What is your favorite thing to do with your kids around town?

We love walking the neponset trail with our new pup Rex


Favorite restaurant or spot for drinks?

Yellow door 100% Best fish tacos I have ever had and amazing margaritas.


What is your go to meal for your family?

Instant pot creative creations with whatever I have in the fridge. Gotta love google for recipes!


Anyone special you would like to thank for helping you through this journey of parenthood?

Yes! My neighborhood extended family. It takes a village. We are so lucky to have such awesome neighbors.


Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!

My husband and I started Milton Porchfest in 2017. We love live music and came up with the crazy idea to bring it to our town. We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into but it has blossomed into a great event that brings the community together every September. Thanks to some seriously dedicated volunteers we will host our 4th Porchfest on Sept 19 2020!


How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?

I few years ago a woman on FB was asking if there was a Mom group in town for working moms. I responded that I didn’t know of one but we could just create a group ourselves. That was probably 4 years ago- a great group of us have been meeting monthly for dinner and drinks ever since. They are all awesome ladies!


What is the best piece of mom advice you ever received?

You can’t fill from an empty cup.

Now in it’s 4th year, Milton’s Columbine neighborhood becomes the most wonderful outdoor concert venue where families stroll, kids play, and OVER 30 bands rock on.
