Fun Fact:

I live on the lake but really like the beach more. I start getting nervous if I haven’t put my toes in the sand in the past month. I read a lot of books and listen to several podcasts. I talk a lot, even in my sleep, and I shout out the answers to Jeopardy! in my own living room. I start listening to Christmas music in September and have Christmas lights on my office door year-round. I am lucky to be back at PC, even if no one in my family can pronounce “Experiential.”

Fun Fact:

Love the beach! My dream is to one day retire to Mexico Beach, Florida, where I’ll read lots of books and take up all of those hobbies I wish I had time for now (sewing, running, woodworking…the list goes on and on)!

And, love those dachshunds! I currently have two delightful pets: Dixie and Chili! I am the joy of their lives and, yes, I’ll admit it, they sort of light up my life as well!

I am the grandmother of three gorgeous grandchildren! But alas! They live in Minnesota so visits are infrequent! Another thing to do upon retirement: enjoy grandchildren (or will it be great-grandchildren by then?)!!

Fun Fact:

I enjoy being outside, especially gardening. My husband and I always have something growing year round, vegetables, flowers, and landscaping plants. We hope to retire to a large working farm some day in the mountains.  My blended family includes three adult daughters and two grandsons born within two weeks of each other. Family is very important to me, and I love spending time with each of them. Travel is at the top of my list of ‘things to do.’ Most weekends, my husband and I can be found exploring antique shops, waterfalls, old houses, and orchards just to name  a few of the fun places we have visited lately.
