My proudest accomplishment is
supporting the development of a leadership program for Girl Scouts in middle school and high school that promotes confidence and value of volunteerism.

My hobbies include
gardening. In an effort to get it just right, I move plants and bushes around my yard like other people rearrange furniture.

The most unusual item in my office is
my Johnny Depp Pirates of the Caribbean tissue box. It was hand crafted by a friend and it makes me smile every time I look at it!
