I moved to Princeton in 1985 to pursue my Master’s degree at Princeton University. My husband, Andy Weiss, and I fell in love with the town and we decided to stay and raise our family here. My two children attended Riverside Elementary and JWMS and are both recent graduates of PHS. Professionally, I worked at ETS for many years and then as a consultant in the field of educational testing. In 2016, I became – and continue to work as – the volunteer coordinator at the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association, central New Jersey’s oldest environmental organization.
- I have been active in the Princeton Community Democratic Organization (PCDO) for more than ten years and have been elected to the Executive Board three times. I am excited to have earned 77% of the vote and therefore the endorsement of the PCDO at the organization’s recent endorsement meeting for Princeton Council.
- I have been the Democratic Committeewoman for Princeton’s Election District 18 since 2014 and have been endorsed for Council by the Princeton Democratic Municipal Committee.
- I was closely involved with Bonnie Watson Coleman’s first campaign for Congress, Andrew Zwicker’s and Roy Freiman’s campaigns for State Assembly, and the campaigns of other local, state and national candidates.
- At the Friends of the Princeton Public Library, I served on the Board and co- chaired the book sale for almost a decade. During those years, I increased the revenue from the booksale sixfold and created a wonderful used bookshop that serves the community.
- I was co-President of the Riverside PTO and expanded access to after-school and enrichment programs so that all children, regardless of ability to pay, could participate. I also supported the School Gardens initiative in its infancy, raised money for and organized several arts & music initiatives, expanded the teacher mini-grant program and left the Riverside PTO with a surplus.
- I currently mentor a high school student through the Give Something Back Foundation, which focuses on providing first generation college students with the tools they will need to succeed.
