On a Lighter Note

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy being outside during warm weather months – gardening, working in the yard, walking, hiking, and playing tennis. I also enjoy reading. My idea of a perfect day includes diving into a book at the beach.

What is something interesting we would not learn about you from your resume alone?
I like learning about people and how they settled where they are. It is interesting to discover what drives people to change or stay the same.

What is one of your proudest accomplishments?
My proudest accomplishment is my family. My husband and I have two grown sons who are fine young men. We enjoy spending time with them and their wives.
