A little facts about me…I grew up in Hawaii, where I met my husband. We have since relocated to Chelsea, Alabama, moving here in 2005. I enjoy exercising with friends, hiking, and raising my Golden Retrievers.  Both of my children (Carrie and Zakary) graduated from Chelsea High School and have since graduated from college.
