Drop me a line
Let’s hang out
I am blessed to love my profession, and to find joy and laughter in my work (even after all these years!). I’m equally blessed to have a full and rewarding life when I am not at work. I love spending time with my large family, and especially enjoy when my children gather at my home. I’m an avid gardener, traveler, dog lover, reader, and “do it yourself” decorator and furniture arranger. I consider myself a lifelong learner, and seek out every opportunity to expand my horizons. (Except for cooking…..)
