Eileen and her husband Robert live along the Canal in New Hope Borough. Like many other residents and visitors of the Delaware Canal towns, they enjoy and have fond memories of their time along the canal biking, hiking and, not all that long ago, watching mule barges packed with delighted tourists. Eileen is committed to keeping those canal activities alive for all to enjoy.
Eileen retired in September 2014 after more than 33 years with Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical division where she held roles in quality management, research and regulatory affairs. She enjoys volunteer work and currently assists the efforts of the New Hope Garden Club, the New Hope for Our Canal initiative, and H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Everyday – a volunteer group of individuals who provide assistance to those in need). Always willing to do what’s needed along the Canal, Eileen has participated in Clean-Up Days, daffodil planting, and fish rescues.
