BLI Graduation Year: 2008
Senior Project Director
Tell us briefly about yourself and please update your classmates on your personal/professional experiences since graduating from BLI:
I have since been re-married to Michael Sackett, who owns Rent-A-Chef Catering Services and moved to the West Side of Binghamton. This year it will be 14 years with the YWCA of Binghamton. My job has shifted some, I still am the Director of ENCORE, plus the Breast and Cervical Program, but as of three years ago, I am now the Senior Project Director, which oversees all the funding, events and fundraising for the YWCA. I am a grandmother of four and at this time we are caring for my grandson full time but love spending time with all of them. Due to time restrictions working and owning a catering business, I had to give up theater and working with SV Drama.
I am a musical lover, my favorite movie would have to be the Greatest Showman
I love to spend time with family. Owning a business we don’t have much time for more.
How did your BLI experience change your perception of the community, and motivate you to become more involved?
I would love to get more involved with many of our community non-profits in the future.
What was your most memorable BLI activity/moment?

What “nugget of wisdom” do you have for your fellow BLI alum?
Take everywhere you go and just enjoy the experience!
