Treasurer, Basel Chapter
As a U.S. citizen, I find myself reminded day after day that we must all work to preserve our democracy. This is no small feat, but the stakes are just too high to not do our part. Living abroad may create physical distance but need not diminish one’s connection and contribution. This is what drives my commitment to Democrats Abroad. It provides a concrete means for me to do my part in concert with other like-minded folks.
I have served in the position of Basel Treasurer since 2017. As part of the Basel leadership team, I am eager to engage local members in the important work of registering and getting out the Democratic vote. A successful Democratic campaign in 2020 is requisite to restoring the heart of U.S. democracy and all that it means.
In the specific role of Treasurer, I remain committed to assuring we maintain strong fiscal procedures, processes and practices in accordance with all relevant guidelines and policies thus acknowledging the responsibility that comes with our stewardship of collective funds.
On a personal level, I have lived in Switzerland for over thirteen years since re-locating from New Jersey for my work with Hoffmann-La Roche from which I retired six years ago. Throughout my life, I have been involved in civic and charitable organizations aimed at addressing racial, gender, environmental, economic and generational justice. Equity was integral in my own opportunities for educational and professional success. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from Douglass College of Rutgers University and a Masters in Business Administration from Rutgers Graduate School of Management.
