As a teen, I danced with School of American Ballet and still really love the world of dance and athletics. I taught spin classes until a little while ago and have competed in triathlons too! I’m also in my 30th year of continuous sobriety.
David and I fancy ourselves hobby farmers, and enjoy gardening, and spending time with our chickens, bunnies, goats, dogs and cats! He’s even learned bee-keeping, so I get to enjoy fresh honey in my favorite herbal teas. I think everyone who knows me, also knows that throwing the frisbee to Zoey is my favorite part of any day!
