I have been blessed to call Arizona my home for over 30 years. Growing up in the Greater Phoenix area, my memories are filled with childhood experiences, quests into adolescence and adulthood and now my own family adventures wrapped in the beautiful desert landscape that is ever changing, but unique to the Valley of the Sun. A student of the Paradise Valley Unified School District, a graduate from ASU's W.P. Carey School of Business, and now raising my own two boys-who are third generation natives, my roots have deepened as a parent, volunteer, leader and board member into local Cub and Boy Scout organizations, after school and youth educational programs, school sports organizations and specialty art programs. Arizona has been my home for over three decades and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Making a life here is a special experience and I am always honored when I get to be a part of someone else creating their Arizona life as well!
