Favorite Experience in Greater Waterbury and the Litchfield Hills
I was born and raised in Waterbury. My grandparents got engaged at the Palace Theater and my father taught in the public school system for 30 years. I have an affinity for the area and a deep appreciation for the work our nonprofit organizations do.
