Originally from Rochester, NY my husband and I moved to Florida to escape the cold, snowy weather in 2007. We haven't regretted it since. My first passion is my husband and my two grown kids, Ashley and DJ but when I'm not "smothering them with my attention", I love working with kids and moms. As far as hobbies, I love music, travelling, baking, cooking,writing, reading, "retail therapy", spending time with family and friends and planning special events. My taste in music varies with my mood from classical to light jazz, top 40, and modern country music. My bucket list consists of having my writing published in some major puhlications and writing a couple of books and I'd be really ecstatic to be able to attend cooking school in Tuscany someday.
