WHEN I’M NOT WORKING… (what? It happens!)

SOME RANDOM THINGS I LOVE…

Broadway Musicals, true crime, learning new things, history, chatting with family & friends, and funny memes.

I LOVE TO TRAVEL…

  • Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach, Oregon is my favorite local destination.
  • My husband and I love to cruise – not for the destination but the relaxation. Don’t judge but we often don’t get off the boat!
  • Since my son has lived in London since 2019, that’s another favorite destination.

I’M INSPIRED BY…

Color, nature, friendships and pop culture. Deadlines are also always inspiring – it 20 years I haven’t missed one yet! (knock on wood…)

YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED TO KNOW…

  • I don’t have any formal art training. I have a degree in Marketing from Penn State University.
  • I don’t know my right from my left instinctively – I really have to think about it.
  • I spent my junior year of high school abroad in Tours, France (sadly my French is very rusty – it’s been awhile!)
