Favorite local spot

Italian House in Westfield, or on a beautiful sunny day you might find me on the Plaza in Midtown Carmel with a beer from SunKing

Fav hobby

Fitness – working out for myself, and helping others through Group Fitness Classes, or 1:1


Dogs are the only way to go! Haha! As an adult I’ve always had larger dogs, mostly labs. My current lab is 8 and still acts like she’s 2. I would love to have a Bernese Mountain Dog at some point.

Weekend Activity

Just about anything with people. Going out to eat, visiting a festival, going somewhere with live music.
