I grew up in the Midwest, but have lived in Florida long enough to appreciate warm weather and beautiful sunsets. I have two daughters. Amy graduated from UF and is living in New York City. Carolyn graduated from FSU and is pursuing a masters degree in nutrition. I am a proud mom.
In my spare time I travel to the beach, read, cook and cycle. I also enjoy relaxing at home with my cat, Spencer.
