I am married to Chuck, a retired principal and elementary school teacher. I have two adult children, Katie and Charlie, who still live in the area, so we are able to meet for dinner almost every weekend. I also have a cat named KitKat. I love to watch movies and read biographies and Christian fiction. My husband and I enjoy walking on the Towpath Trail and in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
