Tell us about your community involvement.

Most of my community involvement happens through school. I am very involved in our school community as I coach two sports during the academic year. During the fall, our soccer team hosts a “Think Pink” game where we collect money at the game and donate the funds to the FitzPatrick Cancer Center at CVPH. During the winter, our basketball team raises money and buys Christmas gifts for families in the Plattsburgh community.
