Hobbies and Personal Information
I love spending time with my husband, Richie, and our two children. Our son, Aidan, is 16, and our daughter, Ashley, is 13. I enjoy hiking and being out in nature, collecting rocks and minerals, playing volleyball, yoga, reading for pleasure, baking, and staying up to date on the latest and greatest topics in education. I also have a huge passion for science. Some of my favorite science topics are space exploration, deep-sea biology, and environmental science & protection.
