Rescue Experience

I have been a member of MAGDRL since 2003. Someone once told me if you love a breed you have to get involved in rescue… I have always loved Great Danes so I discovered MAGDRL at the Super Pet Expo and have been an active volunteer ever since. I started out attending Meet & Greets, doing home and dog evaluations, helping out at events and soon I became the NJ Matchmaker, the Northern NJ Meet & Greet Coordinator, and then the NJ Events Coordinator. I joined the Board in 2006 as the Policies & Procedures Director for a partial term, which followed in 2007 when I became the Grants & Fundraising Director. During my time in that position I raised over $125, 000.00 for the rescue. My biggest accomplishment for MAGDRL has been the Annual Tricky Trays that I coordinated, which brought in over $75,000.00 for MAGDRL. I have been a member of the GDCA since 2010, and Vice President for the Northern NJ Great Dane Club since 2012. I am also the proud Dane mom to 3 Great Danes, one of which is a certified Therapy Dog with Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs Inc.

Special Skills

I am an executive assistant with great organizational skills. Before I became and assistant I ran a Dunkin Donuts which helped me to build my people skills. I take pride in everything I do whether it is organizing a corporate function or setting up a table at a Meet & Greet. I love being at events, spreading the word about our fantastic organization and helping as many Danes as we can.


Time spent with a dog is never wasted.

Vision For MAGDRL

To grow as an organization and help as many Danes as we can. We are a great group of people working together to help our wonderful breed… it is what we do best!!!
