I have lived in Berkeley County for 26 years. I have three grown children and four grandchildren.  As a child of a large Naval family and wife of an Air Force and United Airlines pilot, I have had many opportunities to travel in the United States and to other countries. My husband and I met while working for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, where I worked as an apprentice silversmith and historic interpreter. In addition to a love for teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach, gardening, reading, kayaking, and bicycling.
