Tell us a bit about yourself:

I am 33 years old and a life long resident of Lancaster County. I graduated from Hempfield in 2008 and ventured into the world of the military. I served in the United States Navy as a Seabee. Hoorah! Once I completed that mission I went in the direction of dentistry and found my passion. I have been with Smiles by Stevens for over 7 years and cherish the relationships I’ve made with my patients. 2 years ago I started with Lancaster Pride as the event coordinator and in August transitioned into the President role. I take my position very seriously, giving the LGBTQIA+ a safe and fun festival is my goal! I am very excited that we are moving the festival to the Lancaster Convention Center for 2023! I have been married to my partner Ron for 14 years and we have 2 beautiful teenage daughters. I have 5 fur babies 2 Labrador retrievers, 2 adorable corgis, and our 15 year old pitbull! I truly love my life and the people who are in it!

The VIBE! When I first walked in I knew this was the place I wanted to be at. Everyone was immediately kind and welcoming. And I loved all the beautiful plants and decor!
