Do you have a favorite activity or place to go in Columbus?
Whenever we can fit it in, we like to try new restaurants. A long-standing favorite with the whole family is 101 Beer Kitchen. A new favorite to visit without the kids is Hen Quarter in Dublin’s new Bridge Park area.
Where is an interesting place you have visited or an incredible view you have seen?
I’ve been to Italy (three times), France, Germany, Ireland, Switzerland, and Greece. Each location is impressive, but Cinque Terre in Italy is a must-see. It is one of those perfectly picturesque places that seems unreal in a photo, but the five seaside villages do exist & live up to their picture! Also, a train ride through the Alps from Switzerland to Italy was a highlight for incredible views.
Do you have any pets or favorite animals?
I grew up and still live on a farm, so I am an animal lover in general. We currently raise pigs for local and national shows, have a chicken flock, two barn cats that prefer our porch, and a red merle Australian Shepherd named Roca.
