When I am away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children and taking trips with them whenever possible. I also enjoy photography and love taking pictures of scenic landscapes and of course my family!

If you could trade places with anyone for a day, who would you choose?
One of my children, to experience the wonder of childhood again.

How do you pick your vacation places?
My husband and I are adventurous, so we have a desire to go anywhere basically we’ve never been. We do prefer places that are scenic and where we can experience a different culture.

If you had to pick one age to be permanently, which age would you choose and why?
I wouldn’t want to be any age permanently. I think with every additional year, I grow a little wiser and have a different perspective on life. I enjoy continuing to grow in life and wouldn’t want to be stuck at any age.
