I was raised to value justice and fairness, and to protect the vulnerable. I’ve been acting on those values since I was a child. In grade school, I donated a portion of my weekly allowance to charity. As a teen, I helped run the Trick or Treat for UNICEF program and canvassed for local political candidates. More recently, I’ve worked on political campaigns in a variety of capacities and served as a poll watcher here in Talbot County.
I’ve been a marketing and communications professional for more than three decades. I have experience in a number of industries, including software development, career and technical education, and health and wellness.
My experience also includes adult education and community programming, with significant experience in professional development, interfaith education, stress reduction, health and wellness and more.
And in every setting–from boardroom to classroom to family room–I’ve been bridge builder and collaborative problem-solver.
Although I didn’t have the good fortune to be born in Talbot County, I knew from my first visit that it was home. My husband, Bob Hyman, and I moved to the Eastern Shore in 1996, and settled in Easton in 2000. We love our adopted community, and we’re doing our best to give back to the County that has given us so much.
“We can do better. We can grow and build relationships and expand our in-real-life social networks to include new people and new ways of thinking.”
