A lifelong Ohio resident, I moved to Texas in 2012 and will soon move to Massachusetts! I've traveled across much of America and Europe, enjoying the world's grand vistas and delicious food, which is a passion of mine. I love to shop for it, grow it, prepare it and most of all, eat it! One of my greatest joys comes from entertaining friends and sharing a meal with them. I also enjoy all kinds of music, from classical to country, and everything in between. I savor reading in my free time and my favorites genres are psychological suspense stories and periodicals that keep me current on global events. Literacy is important to me and I frequently work with charities that focus on reading and the arts. A classic extrovert, I love people and as Maya Angelou once said, I try to “be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.”
