She has gotten involved with several teams and has been a huge help to the Marketing Team, offering her advice and expertise in several areas and has even taken the lead on some projects. She is constantly looking at ways to make improvements to the network, often finding things we didn’t even think of. She is a great asset to the network and I look forward to having her around for a long time.” -Marketing Team

How do you spend your free time? My Sundays and Wednesday evenings are devoted to my church. I also enjoy singing and playing violin and piano, reading a good book, relaxing outside, and keeping up with my favorite TV show, Grey’s Anatomy.
Are you involved in other organizations in the community? I stay involved with my church. I serve on the worship team there and will be volunteering to help with their vacation bible school.
