I enjoy exploring the Dublin Bridge Park area with my family, including my three young children. We live close by, and the restaurants, shops, library, and walking trails are perfect for a family day out!

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
When I have the time, I love to bake and try new recipes. Cookies and cakes are my favorite!

Is there an incredible view you have seen?
Yes, Maui, Hawaii is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. The waterfalls, rainforests, lava tunnels, and other natural wonders are all spectacular. I especially enjoyed the sights while hiking the Road to Hana.
