How long have you been with Commuter Services?
In early October this year, I celebrated 15 years with this amazing program! Time absolutely flies when you love what you do! I’m proud of where we started and what we have attained over 15 years.

What about the mission of Commuter Services of PA speaks to you?
I have always been passionate about conserving and caring for our Earth. The fact that our mission aims to improve the regional air quality leaves me with pride and joy in representing Commuter Services! After 15 years, I’m still happily part of the team because of our program mission. It’s the icing on the cake that I also have the opportunity to help others live with more intention through green transportation.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your family.
My husband and I have resided in Central PA our entire marriage. In fact, we purchased the home we still live in just a couple months after I began this adventure with Commuter Services. I’ve traveled to and have lived in many places. I love these roots we’ve chosen.
We have three amazing children that are the center of our lives! Often, we are at a baseball or field hockey game, watching a dance recital or musical, and supporting a number of other hobbies our children choose.
I always carve out time in my busy schedule for two extracurriculars of my own – working out and photography. Staying active and creative keep me centered.

What is your great passion in life?
My greatest passion, without a doubt, is being a mother. I take my ability to leave an imprint on three human lives VERY seriously. Being a mother is a gift, one I am thankful for each and every day of my life!

What would be your words of wisdom to yourself when you were a teenager?
This quote says it best: “Just be yourself. Let people see the real, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful, magical person that you are.”

Where do you see yourself in 15 years?
I’m forever holding onto the now, so it’s tricky to answer this question. My hope is to have my health and to be surrounded by family. I won’t be disappointed to still be part of the Commuter Services program!

I mean, we could all use a little more happiness in our lives. Cher is there to help you get there!
