I worked in corporate America for 25 years until my husband was deployed in 2007-2008. Since then I've been a military family advocate, connecting families to resources and support they need to thrive after a decade of war. I published a book titled "400 Days..Chronicled adventures of a soldier and his wife" in 2009 and hope to continue writing. I like having fun, believe in giving back more than I take and I find humor with silly outrageous comments my friends can make on a daily basis. Truly I'm just in awe of the people I've come across in my journey's and would be just as happy sitting in a pub in Ireland watching people enjoy life as much as I'm happy at the opera. I'm quirky.
