Although petite, I have a great inner strength and wonderful energy. I have an easy going nature and those who meet me find me down to earth and very approachable. I like to embrace every opportunity to be active, socially and physically... truly, I like to be on the go. In my past professional life I have worked with and advocated for children who have special needs and I am very proud of my accomplishments in that regard. I know my work and dedication to the children and families caring for those with special needs was greatly appreciated. I am proud to say that my work change their lives for the better helping to giving them the dignity and worth they deserved. I was also involved in a family business for many years and still lend a hand with accounting matters. I am most proud of being a loving, devoted, mother and wife. I was very fortunate to find a wonderful partner whom I was married to for most of my life. It has been a several years since my husband’s passing and I am taking this new step because I know the wonderful richness of sharing a loving relationship. I believe it is one of the greatest gifts a person can give or receive.
