Lorena Escalero

I have owned a local Newtown based insurance agency for over 20 years.  I have served on many large organization committees, including a national advisory board for a Fortune 100 business. At the start of the pandemic, I worked with the NBA and the Emerging leaders group to ensure the NBA did not collapse and continued to have meaningful and safe events. As the community reopened, I was able to take a seat on the board and help all committees with growth and ideas that foster our great organization. I'm currently trying to restart the retailers committee and help wherever I’m needed.

Kelly Maccia

Hello neighbors. My name is Kelly Maccia. I have been a resident of Newtown for 10 years & there is no place I’d rather live. As a matter of fact, I had the opportunity to move to Raleigh, NC a few years ago & I just couldn’t do it. My reason was & still is, I can’t imagine leaving the amazing friends I’ve made, being able to walk into town, soaking in our beautiful surroundings, regularly supporting our local businesses, which my husband & I have always been committed or leaving a place that children & grandchildren call their second home where special memories are being made. On a professional note, I am a loan officer with CrossCountry Mortgage. I believe it takes more than being an expert in your field to be successful. I work with folks from all walks of life, therefore being genuinely kind, empathic & treating everyone with the utmost respect is key.

As a local business owner, I pride myself in being active in my community and volunteering my time through multiple local organizations. As a leader I strive to improve processes and results as a product of measuring metrics and outcomes based on past results.
