Personal Information:


I love to read and write in my free time. My family and I garden in the Spring/Summer. It is so much fun taking something from a seed and seeing it turn into a beautiful plant or food plant. 

I enjoy listening to live music very much and also love spending time with my sister, brother-in-law, nephew and my parents. I love finding a good series on Netflix or baking new dishes. Fun fact: I am in the process of learning Russian!
