Other Interests 

I love spending time with my family (especially while my kids are still young) and if get a chance to get outdoors in the sunshine then that’s where you’ll find me. So naturally, I really enjoy nature trailing, hiking, kayaking and finishing the day off with a good meal and a new craft beer at the local brewery. I also volunteer as a soccer coach for my daughter’s team.
