On a personal note: I have been married to my sweet hubby 29 years. We have a wonderful, soon to be 16 years old daughter. I love to spend time with my family, enjoy cooking, being a “swim mom”, teaching the 1’s and 2’s Sunday school class at church and playing with our 2 years old Aussie doodle fur baby Andy.
