Welcome to my website. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll visit often.
There's lots of information so rummage around. Check out my "Links" page for an eclectic list of websites and blogs you're sure to enjoy. Did I miss one? Send me an email and let me know!
I was born in Baltimore, MD but was raised, for the most part, in New Jersey. During my junior year of high school, my family moved back to Maryland where I met my best friend and future husband, Wes. We lived in Northern Virginia for nearly twenty years where I worked for some of the high-tech "beltway bandits." Shortly after 9/11, we left the "rat race" to move to central New Hampshire and operate a bed and breakfast. That chapter of our life has recently closed and I'm now the Executive Director for the youth center in town.
I grew up in a Christian home and came to know Jesus at a young age, thanks to Vacation Bible School. Unfortunately, I didn't always live my faith and made mistakes along the way. But God is forgiving and I rest in that fact every day.
The beauty of God's creation awes me and I love to spend as much time as I can outside - hiking, kayaking, snow-shoeing, tubing or just plain walking. I even enjoy mowing the lawn! I'm also a voracious reader - there's usually a stack or two of books ready and waiting on the night stand. Music is also a passion and I'm blessed to be part my church choir and Clearlakes Chorale, a community chorus of 60-80 members.
A "history junkie," I am interested in all eras, but my favorite is World War II. I continue to be amazed at the stories I read and hear about ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
