Background & Experience
Originally from Pittsburgh, my career with the Social Security Administration took me across the state of
Pennsylvania. I started my career when I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, with a BS in
Education. I began as a Claims Representative in Greensburg PA, then worked in several different field
offices across the state. I was an Operations Supervisor in the Reading PA office before going into Public
Affairs for seven years in the Philadelphia Regional Office. This is where I developed a love for educating
the public about the Social Security Programs, traveling across the state and conducting educational
seminars and hosting exhibits. I ended my career as the District Manager in DuBois for ten years,
retiring in 2015 after 35 years of service.
I am dedicated to helping people understand their Social Security benefits and I now provide personal
consultations, free of charge, regarding Retirement, Survivors and Disability Benefits. I always say, “You
are never too young to start planning for your Retirement.” Planning early and planning well will
undoubtedly result in a better retirement.
I am also available to groups and businesses for a personalized seminar on topics such as, “Preparing for
Retirement”, “How to file for Social Security Retirement Benefits”, “What if I become Disabled?” and any
other topic of interest to the group. Recognizing that individuals within a group often have personal
questions, I always allow time for questions and the option to schedule a free consultation in our office.
Please call me if you have any questions regarding Social Security! I will be happy to schedule an
appointment, in person, via Zoom or over the phone at your convenience.
