I may be small in stature but I am BIG on supporting others. For me, it’s my “why.” I am “still” here despite years of severe health challenges so that I can help people. I believe that to be true with all of my heart. Each day my intention is one of helping others. It’s what has me rising early, with a game plan in mind and has me resting a weary head at night, thinking of who else needs to be helped, guided or supported. It’s my why.
It’s why being a Realtor brings me such a great sense of reward. Each day I’m able to guide, advocate and fight for those that I care about deeply. It was the same satisfying feeling I got from teaching elementary school in Brookline Ma. To know that each day I was making a difference in the lives of my first, second and third graders was the best feeling ever. A feeling that had me arriving at 6 am to start preparing for the day and one that had me up late at night planning for the next morning’s lessons. I still have that sense of drive and discipline as a Realtor. Early mornings and late nights fueled by my desire to make a significant difference in the lives of others.
It is within that framework that I decided to sponsor Parkbench, Barrington RI. I wanted to create a site that supported the small businesses that fuel our little town in Barrington, RI. To be able to highlight their hard work, their ingenuity and their fortitude especially during a pandemic became a “must do.” In so doing I hope to shine the light not only on the heartbeat behind our small town but on the way of life and the incredible humans that make this seaside town, my hometown, so endearing.
