What I love the most about my work?
I love providing peace of mind for clients and protection for their families. For those with special needs, I love being a voice for them and providing stability for their future.
When I’m not at work, you will find me enjoying…
Weather-permitting, my husband and I love to hike new territories, finding waterfalls and whitewater for rafting. When weather doesn’t permit, I love to quilt, bake, and watch British mysteries.
Something you might not know about me is….
I was part of the team to set a Guinness World Record for the longest chain of paper dolls in the world (almost 5 miles) to bring awareness to Deaf children who experience abuse.
