The Fun Stuff

Random thing about you? I love sharks! My bucket list #1 is to cage dive with great white sharks.

Perfect Saturday? Getting to sleep late, walking to the beach with a good book, and relaxing in the sun and sand.

Funny family memory? When my oldest daughter was three years old, she visited Groupon on my phone and purchased a motorized parachute ride in a nearby town…for $300. Luckily, Groupon allows returns.
