The Fun Stuff
Random thing about you? Being a therapist is my second career. In a previous life I was an FBI agent! After 7 years as an agent, I rearranged my life priorities, went back to school and became a therapist.
Perfect Saturday? Drinking a hot cup of coffee as the sun is rising, reading something inspirational, having a leisurely pancake breakfast with my family, and then heading to Legoland for the day!
Funny family memory? On a visit to San Diego, we left the back door of our hotel room open while spending the day at the beach. We came back to find that the ducks from the lovely pond outside had wandered into our room and were making themselves comfy on our stuff!
