ReClaim McKeesport Ambassador
“We have hope. We can overcome our situation if more people would get involved”
My hometown is McKeesport, PA and I have lived there for 25 years. I worked for GNC in retail management for 14 years until I retired. I am married and have four grandchildren. I decided to get involved so that I can help reclaim the city that I love and assist community members working with vacant lots and properties. I am looking forward to obtaining valuable information and connections to reclaim the city in many different ways. For my project I am looking to work on a garden that has trees, benches, and flowers.

I’m not a bad golfer. I have a lot of great friends that I’ve had since I was young. I’ve enjoyed watching my grandchildren grow up, and I love to laugh.
