Fun facts

  • I grew up in beautiful, historic Riverside, and now along with my husband, son and two cats, live in the house I grew up in.
  • The most beautiful place I lived was at Tryon Farm in Michigan City, IN.
  • If I could wave a magic wand I would be playing softball under the lights on a warm summer night


Hobbies
I love traveling with my family, visiting State parks, finding small coffee shops, and discovering the best Mexican food in the most unexpected places. The library is my favorite place and reading is one of my favorite things to do. I love walking, I love how I feel when I’m done running, and yoga is my new favorite form of exercise.

What I like about LGG
“I love the variety of projects we work on and the depth of experience and skills our team brings to each one. I like the direct link between our work and creating or preserving affordable and supportive housing. ”
