I am employed by YEI Healthcare as a Data Coordinator. In addition I am a freelance makeup artist and volunteer as an assistant cross-country and track coach for my husband, Eric, at Shawnee State University. We have two boys who are great sports and love to travel with us, mainly because traveling to larger cities means a trip to the Lego store.
I am originally from Dayton and a graduate of the University of Dayton with a degree in English Literature. I have lived in Portsmouth for ten years and recently graduated from Shawnee State University with degrees in Environmental Engineering Technology and Legal Assisting.
In my spare time, I collect insects, vintage clothing, vinyl records, and Fiestaware, and I am probably not as good of a cook as I should be, considering how much I love to do it.
My dance experience is very limited; a course at UD plus a couple of private lessons when I lived in Seattle a million years ago…but I don’t let that stop me. I love music, especially new wave, classic rock, and bossa nova.
Recent environmental disasters, not as far from home as I’d like, have gotten me thinking about how much we take for granted. The Red Cross is an organization that is well-established enough that they can and do mobilize quickly, and, while I hope never to need them, we simply cannot take them for granted.
I look forward to dancing with Francesca Hartop in Dancing With our Stars - clearly, SOMEONE has seen me dancing at weddings and thought, “get that woman up on a stage where she BELONGS.” Also, my 2015 New Year’s Resolution was to get involved in at least one community service project, and I must have been visualizing properly, because this one promises to be the most fun project I could have asked for.
