Fun Facts and Hobbies

  • Hiked the underground tunnel at the Western Wall in Israel, got lost driving from California to Texas and found Carlsbad Caverns. Kayaking in Texas is her love even though she ends up in the water more than in the kayak.
  • Playing with her dog and actually every dog she sees! Writing poetry and journaling.
  • Raising money for her close friend's dog sanctuary in the Netherlands
