- My faith provides a foundation that keeps my life in perspective. I am an active member of Westminster Presbyterian Church and especially enjoy singing in their choir.
- My two cats, Honey and Mocha, remind me not to spend all night at the office.
- Classical music concerts, theater, movies and books are wonderful distractions I try to indulge occasionally.
- Knitting, crocheting, cross-stitch, and hardanger are my current creative outlets. I especially enjoy designing many of the projects I make.
