A lifetime resident of the Lehigh Valley, Colette grew up in the countryside of Vera Cruz, then settled in Allentown to raise her family. She acknowledges that “home” has been the key to comfort, stability and success in every phase of her life, whether renting an apartment, a house, an office for business, or owning her own property.
Colette’s work history began with a decade of “rising through the ranks” with Hess’s department stores. She transitioned to the advertising, marketing and public relations industry, serving as a long-term partner of an Allentown-based ad agency. Years later, Colette’s community volunteerism led to a long-term staff position as communications director of Lehigh Valley’s regional Girl Scout council, serving seven counties in eastern PA and western NJ. Private consulting for other non-profit organizations took her back to retail – several years in the commercial real estate industry, marketing malls in Palmer and Salisbury townships, plus property management for a real estate investment trust.
