On a Lighter Note

What was your first job?
At age 11, I started working in my Dad’s ice cream store. I worked there until I had my first child. I loved it and particularly enjoyed making and serving the ice cream and ordering the candy.

Is there an interesting place you have visited?
My family and I have visited the Grand Cayman Islands three times. We have stayed at the same amazing condo with a patio and balcony just steps from a private beach. The water is beautiful and we like to take swimming excursions to swim with the stingrays.

What is one of your proudest accomplishments?
One of my proudest accomplishments is raising four successful children while mostly working full-time. I was able to attend all of their activities and provide for them to do the things that were important to them.
