She designed and obtained funding and managed a partnership with Niagara University, City of Niagara Falls, and North End Block Club in order to build the first handicap-accessible playground in Niagara Falls.

On a personal note, she was married to Joseph Corsaro (deceased) and is the proud parent of three wonderful children and six delightful grandchildren. Service runs in the family beginning with her father in the military and continuing to her son.
Service is her way of life.
