Welcome to "Frankly Speaking" the Oneonta Y's New Blog!

Welcome to the Oneonta Y "Speaking Frankly" blog!

Born and raised in Oneonta, I certainly feel that I understand our community needs having served 25 years as an Oneonta Firefighter saving lives. I have been working at our Y since 1999 and became the Executive Director in 2008, where I now get to shape lives and help develop the best resource a community could ever have -- our children and families. The Oneonta Y has been serving the Otsego and Delaware County communities since 1883 to provide everyone the opportunity to be healthy and thrive, to connect with others, and contribute to a better community. Everything the Y does is in service of making us -- as individuals and a community -- better.

Please join me and my team weekly to learn more about all of the great and exciting things that we do! If you like what you read, feel free to start a conversation and connect with us about it on our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn!
