Remote Parents: For the 2020-2021 school year, I created and ran a Facebook group for parents of full remote students in the Tewksbury Public School System. I worked with a small group of parents, where we would have zoom calls and write letters to the Tewksbury school administrators regarding what we desired for our children. I helped gather data, contributed to the letters, shared the info with parents not on Facebook, ran an email associated with the group and updated the group. I not only contributed information that was helpful for my child but for children of all grades in the Tewksbury schools.
Girl Scouts: I was involved in Girl Scouts for 13 years. I was on the Baldwin Girl Scouts Service Team which met in preparation of the service unit meetings for all leaders of Girl Scout Troops in Tewksbury and Wilmington. I was a cookie booth coordinator where I scheduled booth sales, held trainings, provided information, shared ideas and answered questions to assist leaders and cookie moms with their booth sales. I was also a troop leader for 13 years taking my daughter from Daisies to Ambassador Girl Scouts. I planned and ran events such as Halloween Dances, Bingo, Roller Skating, Ice Skating, First Aid, Holidays Around the World, Christmas Ornament Decorating, and Cupcake Wars. With my leadership skills, I was able to teach my troop to run and plan some of these events on their own. I also volunteered at other organizers’ events and helped plan them, such as Scavenger Hunt, Cupcake Decorating, Scrapbooking, Girl Scout Sunday, Candy & Nut sorting and the Leader Appreciation Dinner. I participated in many town events such as Harvest Festival, National Night Out, Safe Trick or Treat, 911 Ceremony, and the Memorial Day Parades.
Town Warrant Article: I researched, wrote, advocated, and successfully rallied votes to pass a new town bylaw to protect residents from unwanted door-to-door solicitation through a new “Do Not Knock” registry at the 2021 fall town meeting. The bylaw was passed unanimously.
