“I am extremely thankful for the opportunities I had to see other parts of the country and world and experience a variety of cultures, but I’m glad to be home in California. I have three children who are 22, 20 and 18 years old. I also have three fur babies, two pugs and a lab mix. In my free time I like to work out, go to the beach, and hang out with friends, some of whom I’ve known since kindergarten. I also love Disneyland and am a season pass holder so I go as often as I can!”
