What is your favorite book(s)?

Pride and Prejudice, of course!  :) Well, maybe Count of Monte Cristo, too!   I have to add that my favorite author is Charles Martin.  He has an incredible ability to use a few words to convey huge emotion.

What is your favorite thing about Richmond?

Just ONE? Coming from upstate New York, the sunshine and weather!

Tell us about your family:

My husband and I have 8 children...SEVEN girls and ONE boy.  And a female dog to boot!  Our children live in New York, Virginia, and North Carolina.  My brother-in-law, Derek, lives with us and if you get a chance to meet him, he loves to chat and smile with you!  We just moved to Rockville and are enjoying the incredible beauty and peace of Virginia's countryside.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I love traveling, writing, reading, and being active outdoors.  We can be in the mountains in 1 1/2 hours and at the ocean in 2 cool is that?!

Why are you excited to be a part of Third Church?

Third's environment is truly one of loving God and loving neighbor.  To be able to work in such an environment with people of this mindset, as well as worship in it, is a double blessing, indeed!
