About Alice

I am a Salem resident, a homeowner, and a lifelong activist. I have lived in Massachusetts with my husband and daughter for over 20 years and made Salem my home in 2011. 

I attended Salter College for business and worked as an office manager in New York City before starting my own business as a music teacher. I currently teach in my community for a small, family-owned business. Additionally, I am a board member of my self-managed condominium association.

I am passionate about serving my community through my volunteer work. I campaigned for Automatic Voter Registration, and I volunteer for Common Cause Massachusetts, an organization dedicated to integrity in elections and transparency in government. I am a regular volunteer with the Salem Food Pantry and My Brother's Table soup kitchen in Lynn, and a supporter of organizations such as No Place for Hate, MoveOn, and the Sierra Club. 

I am excited to earn the opportunity to bring my passion for community and public service to this office, and represent our community members on Salem's City Council.
