Fun Facts:

What do you love to do outside of work?

Outside of work, I am always outside. I love adventure weekends! These consist of hiking, traveling to the coast, camping, horseback riding or taking my two dogs down to the lake to swim.

If you could have any other fantasy career what would it be and why?

I’ve always loved to sing and perform. My fantasy career would be a country music artist and performer.

What makes you laugh the most? 

My husband and two dogs make me laugh the most. My husband is always acting goofy and finding ways to make me laugh and smile. My Doberman and Boxer are my two children and have the silliest personalities.

If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be? 

If I could choose to do anything for a day it would be a Kentucky Derby horse trainer or a K-9 Officer trainer.
