She’s happiest in the beautiful SoCal weather, where sunglasses and sandals are perfectly acceptable everyday wear! She lives in the Santa Clarita Valley with her two children and her husband, and teacher and a coach. They love having fun in the sun, packing every free weekend full of hiking, camping, and adventures at Disneyland.
