Love spending time with my 2 girls, 9 and 12; and my wonderful husband of 16 years. We enjoy vacationing at my family’s home in Vermont and all types of travel; national and international. I love gardening, and caring for our chickens. I played collegiate soccer 4 years at UC Davis, and I continue to play weekly in Murrieta. I also coached both girls in AYSO until they moved to club soccer.
