When I’m not at work, I spend my time____?
I walk my dogs A LOT. I also like to listen to live music at our local breweries, cook healthy casseroles, work in my yard, make jewelry and volunteer with animal charities…I’ve built fences for Chain-free Asheville for the last 8 years, and I also do transports of shelter dogs. I’m also a huge fan of The Pittsburgh Penguins-Stanley Cup Champs, baby!
Favorite concert(s) you’ve attended?
Recently – Foreigner. My first concert was Kenny Rogers. I went with my Mom and we had matching embroidered pocket jeans and concert t-shirts.
Favorite album or recording artists?
My favorite song is “Vienna” by Billy Joel. The lyrics really speak to me.
Remember the Titans /John Wick/The Equalizer/The Incredibles / Anything on Food Network / The Walking Dead /Survivor (yes, I still watch it) / Law & Order (new and reruns).
My favorites book is The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski. I also liked The Goldfinch. I’m a big Stephen King/ Dean Koontz fan. I subscribe to Food Network Magazine…for the pictures.
What kinds of pets do you have?
I have two dogs. Sally Jane is 6 years-old and a black Lab/Pit mix. She likes to stalk squirrels, rabbits & wild turkeys. Jackson is a Jack Russell and is 11 years old. I can’t say the word b-a-l-l in front of him. He likes to hunt the lizards around my house.
What is one of your favorite vacations you’ve taken?
I’ve been to Jamaica a few times. The snorkeling and people are the real attraction there. I really like Charleston for the food and architecture.
If we looked in your refrigerator, what would we find?
Cheese, vodka and kale.
What was your first car?
1977 white 4-door Chevy Chevette. I called it the zit.
If you could only travel to one more country, which country would you choose?
Instead of what country, I really want to choose a mode of transportation. I really want to take a long train ride somewhere. I want to get my own room and a big window that I can watch as the countryside goes whizzing past. I will get lulled to sleep by the constant clacking of the wheels and wake up in a completely different place.
