Together, with effective planning and communication, we can bring about positive change aesthetically and socially to our community.
A native New Yorker and a wife and a mother of 6 children, I have lived in Waldorf, MD for over 12 years. My family and I moved to the Fieldside Community in 2015. I am passionate about civic service, community engagement, and safety. I truly believe it takes a Village and that everyone in our Village is essential to the overall well-being, safety, and sustainability to a thriving and healthy culture.
With over 15 years of a combination of operations, administration and event management, I have successfully managed teams to succeed within tight time constraints and budgets. As the Board President, I am committed to ensuring that there is complete oversight of the community's overall operations, expenditures, along with complete transparency and accountability.
My goals this term are the following:
“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.” – Mahatma Gandhi

BOARD DIRECTOR - Cyndi Harkins
CAA- Committee on Aesthetics and Architecture
I am an eight year resident of Charles County and a two year resident of Fieldside. We are a retired military family and when my husband Mike and I were house hunting Fieldside was our number one choice for our new neighborhood. We took one look at the house on Barnstormers and put in an offer. We love it here.
As a large blended family, with eight adult children and three granddaughters, (many of you know my son Arie, ‘Roller Skater” and the Skating Big Bad Wolf from Halloween), it’s important to me that our neighborhood is connected and safe.
We are big fans of the Blue Crabs, so game day you’ll often see us walking to the stadium or when the weather is nice walking our rescue pups, Duke and Rebel.
I have spent my entire 30+ year career somewhere in the medical field, and currently, work for a medical device company that affords me a flexible schedule.
Community is very important to me. I enjoy getting to know my neighbors and look forward to meeting more of you. The diversity in our community is fantastic and we can learn so much from each other.
“People who think differently solve problems smarter than people who think alike” and focusing on solutions and not problems is, in my opinion, the best way to get things done.
I have lived in Waldorf for 3 years and moved to the Fieldside Community in August 2018 after previously residing in the Sheffield neighborhood. We moved to Maryland from Scott AFB, IL where I was a Medical Administration Clerk for the military for 15+ years and I am an Air Force veteran.
After traveling the world with my husband of 27 years, “we” finally retired and made Waldorf, Maryland our home after my husband accepted a job on Joint Base Andrews in 2015. With the many assignments that we have had over the years, we have never been stationed stateside this far east. Originally from Dallas (myself) and Cincinnati (husband), this was a change of pace for us. After moving to Maryland, the Waldorf area has quickly grown on us and we decided to put down some permanent roots here in the Fieldside community.
Although we retired from the military, I still stay active in the Air Force community. I currently volunteer and serve as Key Spouse Mentor for the 89th Aerial Port Squadron on Joint Base Andrews. In this position, I welcome spouses of newly assigned military members to the squadron as well as keep them abreast of base activities and events on Joint Base Andrews. I also conduct wellness checks on spouses when their military member is deployed. This is something that is near and dear to my heart since I am the spouse of a retired military member who has deployed several times to numerous places around the globe. I still enjoy staying engaged with my Air Force community and I hope to be able to serve in the same capacity while serving as the Fieldside HOA Secretary. I’ve also served as a volunteer to the American Red Cross and the Military & Family Support Center. I think it’s important to stay connected to your community as well as assist with keeping families connected to the community. I am excited to be an active member of this beautiful community.

We have wonderful people, lots of talent, and a whole lot of energy that will deem success once focused on building and not breaking. Let’s use our energy in building, we have work to do, but together we can do it. Communities are built by various members with different strengths and talents. When we’re able to step up and act on our strengths and talents, we can build a GREAT community. I am looking forward to working with you all and enjoying our community.
