I was born and raised on Cape Cod, and I am actually a 14th generation descendant on my Mom’s side. My biggest and best accomplishment is having raised and been able to love my son and daughter who are both successful and happy in their own right, and now I am a proud nana too. I have been in banking for 20 years which has allowed me to have time for my family and to be able to give back to my community in many ways. They include Relay for Life, March of Dimes, Easter Seals, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, GreenCAPE, CC5’s Credit for Life, Cape Cod Trail Race, and now Cape Cod MOVES. I am proud to be on the board of this new dynamic, health and charitable focused organization.

Carl was the first person on Cape Cod to finish a marathon in all 50 states and enjoys being active. He is proud of helping people get to their first starting line and he has been a part of several events that helped people heal after the Boston Marathon bombing. Smile. Move Forward. Help Others. Repeat.
Mike is an outdoors enthusiast. He loves doing anything he can to appreciate the beauty of our planet. If he can get some exercise in the process, it’s an added bonus. In his time off you may find him doing things such as climbing a mountain, scuba diving, or snowshoeing. While out kayaking one day he decided he needed to start running so that he could complete a marathon. A year later he completed his first of many marathons.
Jo-Ann started running as a way to spend time with friends after work. She enjoys reading, yoga and running. She loves to cheer on friends and family as they compete and achieve their fitness goals. Jo-Ann believes that movement refreshes body, mind and spirit.

He is a volunteer with the Falmouth Service Center, the Falmouth Shellfishing Department and is a WE CAN champion.
I have made my home on Cape Cod for 35 plus years. As a self-employed “workaholic” , I am constantly striving to get outside. I enjoy hiking the White Mtns of NH, walking Cape Beaches, running many of our local races, and bike riding on our roads and pathways. Having recently completed my 200 hr yoga training, a life long believer in movement, and a desire to give back to the community I feel Cape Cod Moves, Inc and myself is a natural fit.
