I was born and raised in Northern Indiana but have traveled all over the world visiting or working in the UK, France, UAE, Greece, Malaysia, Singapore, Turkey, Jordan, Indonesia, Thailand and several Caribbean Islands with my favorite being the Bahamas. I have 2 children and 7 grandchildren. I love being outside walking my dog, working in the garden, and spending time with my family and friends on the lake. I have coordinated events, trade shows, parties and family gatherings my entire career and am blessed to have met and mentored many people along the way. I was engaged and married in the Bahamas and have vacationed there over a dozen times and, I hope to buy a house there when I retire.
