Interests Outside of Work:

I love to be outside. I love the lake and spending the weekend boating and skiing on Lake Greenwood. My most favorite spot is my swing , which sits looking out over the lake at our family lake house. I love to work in the yard and will plant anything! I love to paint and help other people decorate their home. I took an interior design course and love decorating and re-arranging my home.

I enjoy walking and stamping and card making. I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and teach stamping and card making classes.

I love to travel and have a few places left on my list: Bermuda, Costa Rica and anywhere in the Mediterranean.

I have a kitty named Gracie who fights with me over MY chair!

Favorite Food:
I could be deserted on an island with cottage cheese, bananas, pineapple, cheese-its, pizza and hamburgers and I would be happy.

Favorite Movie:
