I started Secure-A-Home, Inc. in 1988 after graduating from Shippensburg University with a degree in Marketing. I am a graduate of Governor Mifflin High School and was born and raised in Berks County. I have been married to a wonderful husband and father for the last 24 years and am the mother of 3 children – Matthew, Alex, and Leah.

Born in the heart of Berks County, Pennsylvania, I embarked on my academic journey at Pennsylvania State University, graduating in 1991. Following my academic pursuits, I commenced my professional tenure with a renowned regional accounting firm, where I solidified the foundation of my finance and accounting expertise. My diverse professional trajectory has seen me work with organizations spanning from intimate family-run businesses to industry-leading Fortune 500 companies. This vast array of experience naturally led me to join the ranks of BSGI in 2015. My vision for BSGI encompasses not just sustained growth in our current market but also proactive exploration of acquisition opportunities. Outside the contours of the professional realm, I cherish quality moments with my son, Nate, and my partner, Jessica. I also have a penchant for golfing, skiing, and rejuvenating by the serene New Jersey beaches.
Soon after graduating from Penn State University, I started working for BSGI in their residential division. I spent the majority of my first 9 months working in the field in order to learn the intricate details of security and fire alarm systems. 25 years later, I serve as BSGI’s Sales Manager, a position I’ve held since April 2011. I enjoy mountain biking, fishing and coaching football and baseball in my spare time.
I started with BSGI in 1997 as a service technician and opened our service center office in York, Pa in 1999. When I started, my duties included Sales, Service, and Inspections.

I was raised in Berks County and a graduate from Reading High School. I currently live in Bernville and have 3 wonderful kids, Kasey; Carter and Emma. After High School, I joined the workforce in Building Maintenance for a Landlord in Reading, which introduced me to Jim B. from SAH. After discussions, I decided to start a career with SAH/BSGI as an Installer/Tech and have been able to grow within the company over the last 20 years. Outside of work, I enjoy Dirt Track Racing; Coaching my daughters Youth Soccer Team; sitting on a Beach with an adult beverage and going out with my friends.
I began my technical career by serving for 8 years in the U.S. Navy as an Electronics Technician. In 1990, I began my next chapter as a Technical Specialist at Berkshire Systems Group, Inc. In the 30 years that followed, I have served BSGI in many capacities including Service Manager, Sr. Applications Specialist, and Director of Fire & Life Safety. In October of 2020, I began proudly serving BSGI as Operations Manager and am now excited to continue my successful career as a member of the finest Operations Team in the Life Safety, Sprinkler, Security Integration and Communications Industries.
