When I’m not working…You can find me working in the yard, cleaning up after said children, and coaching softball.
Favorite Destinations: I love heading back to the Boston area to visit friends and family. Other than that, there are no favorites. I want to see the world, experience new cultures, and discover interesting architecture.
Best advice: Treat people the way you want to be treated.
Hidden Talents: I’m beginning to discover that I’m a pretty good coach and I really enjoy it.
