What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I love reading books, mostly fiction from the bestseller list and recommendations from friends. I also enjoy traveling and spending time with my family.
Where is an exciting place you have visited?
I loved visiting the beautiful country of Costa Rica. One hotel I stayed at was only accessible by boat, and getting there was like being on a real-life Disney Jungle Cruise. In addition to the friendly people, my favorite parts were waking up to the sound of the birds and monkeys and watching the Arenal Volcano appear from behind the morning mist.
Do you have any pets?
Our family has a red English Labrador Retriever named Leon. He is the perfect family dog who keeps us active. He also encourages us to meet people with his need for attention from everyone he encounters on his walks.
