Get to Know Me

What are your interests outside of work?

I am a mother of two teenagers and nine furry critters. My interests include music, literature, cinema, fine art, interior design, painting, crafting, cooking, homesteading, and canine obedience training.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I support my mental and emotional well-being by dedicating time to one enjoyable activity per day as well as mini brain breaks throughout the day.

What book have you read more than once?

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou is at the top of my list. Her writing style is full of passion, strength, and resilience. I can hear her sure and unapologetic voice as I read the pages, creating a vivid picture and causing the book to come alive.

How do you recharge?

I recharge by getting outdoors and focusing on the senses nature offers or experiencing anything that causes me to laugh out loud.

Do you have any pets?

I have three dogs and six cats that are all rescues. While it's never a dull moment in my house, my favorite story is an ongoing saga of Tobiah Zachariah (the grey tabby) and his nemesis, Chewbacca (Chewy) Neimiah (a pit/chow mix) who love to hate each other and carry on the stereotypical idea that cats and dogs cannot coexist in peace. Following their usual grumpy verbal interactions, Chewy promptly settles in with Abigail Rose, the orange tabby.

I also feed several feral cats, a couple of kit foxes, a family of raccoons, and a pair of possums. While they enjoy being fed, they are elusive and prefer their independence rather than join my furry family.
