•  I hail from Cass Township, Schuylkill County where I was born and raised. I have a younger sister and brother. I am a graduate of Minersville Area High School where I was active in concert band, marching band, volleyball, softball and basketball. I was drum majorette for 2 years and also went on to be named Minersville's First Female Scholar Athlete and salutatorian of my graduating class. I attended the University of Scranton, Scranton Pa where I earned my bachelors of science in physical therapy with minor in gerontology in 1990 as well as earned All MAC awards for both softball and volleyball. I have been a physical therapist for 30 yrs having worked in pediatrics, medical, sports and long term care and am entering my 11th year here in the district. 

    I have a variety of interests including reading, watching any NCIS/Criminal mind type show and classic or unique cars. (I own a 1966 Dodge Charger and a 2012 mini coupe countryman )  I participate each summer on a Mom's for Make A Wish softball team raising monies to grant wishes for some amazing families. I can usually be found attending any Pine Grove Area Cardinal sporting event or musical  where the kids fondly call me Momma Char, supporting my kids various activities or visiting my family who still reside in the Minersville area.

    I still live in the Skook in Pine Grove, Pa with my husband, Chris and my two children, Clarissa and Shea. Clarissa is currently a sophomore at Arcadia University, Glenside, Pa and Shea is entering his senior year of high school at Pine Grove Area High School. I have 2 dogs, Tilly and Ripley, 2 cats, LJ and Sissy and recently added a kitten, Simba to our family.
