Habitat helped me open a new and useful door in my life when I retired. I chose to walk through that door, and my life has been the better for it.

I am happy to be a Board member of Habitat for Humanity because of the work they do to “help build homes for those in need across the world.” I believe it is a human right that every person has a place to call their own, and what Habitat for Humanity does is to ensure that happens for one family at a time. I also believe that while I am here, I need to make life better for all that I can while I can. That is why I volunteer.
As a real estate broker in the Poconos, I understand the importance of home ownership. I am passionate about Habitat for Humanity’s vision to build strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing. This is why I dedicate my time and resources to volunteer with this wonderful community of individuals.
Throughout my business career I have always felt a responsibility to give back to the community. I served as a Board member of the Arthritis Foundation for sixteen years. In 2000 I was invited to play in the MCHFH Annual Golf Tournament and realized their mission is so vital and this is what I do every day. Since then I have served on the Board of Directors and I chair our Annual Golf Tournament each year!
I am a long time resident of Monroe County and had my own mechanical contracting business. Later I taught building trades maintenance full time at Monroe Career and Technical Institute and HVAC part-time at Northampton Community College. I have volunteered with Habitat for over ten years and am currently chairman of the Construction Committee and on the Board of Directors.
I am active in my community, school, and church. As a member of the Board of Monroe County Habitat for Humanity, I find it is a good experience being involved with this organization that helps the community. I look forward to the expertise I can bring to my time on the Board, as well as to the lessons I will learn.
Monroe County Habitat for Humanity has a mission that directly aligns with who I am. I have found that being of service, especially to those in the world that need an extra hand, provides meaningful purpose in my life. This wonderful organization allows me an opportunity to fulfill that purpose in the community I was raised in and continue to call home. I am honored to be a member of this Board of Directors; a group whose dedication is truly remarkable.
My reason for getting involved with Monroe County Habitat is simple. I have had people help me in my life and I want to give back in a way that helps for the long term. Making a home safe and healthy is something that makes a difference every day for them and knowing that I played a part gives me an internal satisfaction that is like no other.
Acting Executive Director
