What is your favorite sport? 

Baseball, by far, is my favorite sport.  Played 3rd base/SS in high school and my son played baseball at the college level.  My husband and I have coached youth baseball and softball teams while all 3 of our children grew up in the community sports programs. Being from Pittsburgh, I have always been a big Pirates fan and I have enjoyed supporting the Washington Nationals and cheered with them all the way to their National Championship Title in 2019!


Outside of the office, I enjoy....

The Arts.  I enjoy seeing Broadway venues.  I know a Rockette as she was one of my son's dance instructors.  And, I also love to partake in Art projects. I'm also a big fan of sports, tennis, pickleball, baseball, ice skating, and others.
