She has been married for 33 years to her first husband, Bill. They have two adult children, Rebecca and Thomas, as well as a son-in-law, Ky. They became grandparents in June 2017 with the birth of their grandson, Calvin, and if you want to see her light up, ask to see pictures!

She enjoys games and puzzles of all kinds, as well as reading, and spending time with family and friends. She believes that, “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted” (Aesop) and aspires to live in a way that aligns with this belief.
