I grew up in beautiful, historic Riverside, and now along with my husband, son and two cats, we live in the house I grew up in.
I love traveling with my family, and in addition to visiting new places, we make annual trips to Washington D.C., Sarasota, FL and Fountain Hills, AZ. The library is my favorite place and reading is one of my favorite things to do. Our house is buried in books and magazines! I love walking, getting a great workout on my Peloton bike and practicing yoga.
What I like about LGG
“I enjoy 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. Our team is hard working and also a lot of fun.”
