My family is the most important part of my life.  I am blessed to still have both of my parents living, and I have two beautiful daughters and three grandchildren.  My grandkids have been the best part of my life: Justin is a project manager for Martins Steel Fabrication, Jamie (granddaughter J) is a welder for Martins Steel Fabrication, and Cole is currently deployed in Afghanistan. 
 
The next loves of my life are Captain and Tennille, my pups!
 
Traveling with my family and friends to the beach is my favorite get-a-way!  I love the tranquility of gardening and watching flowers bloom.
 
I have been working as a fundraiser for over 16 years, 9 at Refuge of Hope.  I believe I have the best job in Stark County!   I am blessed to work with our residents and dinner guests and it is a joy to raise the funds necessary to help them.
