I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay, crabbing, fishing, sailing, and building sand castles, tree houses, and secret gardens in the woods. After graduating from Southern, I attended Cook College and Rutgers University, where I got my BS in Environmental Studies, competed for Rutgers Gymnastics, and met my husband, Mark. Since then, I have worked as a naturalist, coached gymnastics, planted my vegetable garden in the shape of a labyrinth, sold organic eggs and chickens, and raised three children. I returned to school for a MBA from Trinity DC, with an emphasis on Women in Leadership, in 2008. I am the president/CEO of Williams & Heintz Map Corporation, the family printing company that was started by my great grandfather.
The environment, education, social justice, smart growth, transportation, and supporting local food, agriculture, and business are some of the issues that are important to me that you can learn about on my website.
