    I have been a member of Christ Church for two years and have recently become the clerical accountant and bookkeeper.  Through this position, I’m looking forward to getting more involved with the church and meeting lots more of our church family.  Prior to this position, I worked in financial firms in Boston and New York.  My most recent corporate position was with Goldman Sachs as an Institutional Client Relationship Manager.  For the past twelve years, I have lived in Middletown, NJ with my husband and three children. I enjoy being active in my community and volunteering on a number of school committees.
