From a young age, she always had a fondness for Humanities; particularly Art and Architecture have always been a passion of hers (this was her minor while attending University). Her intrinsic passion deeply encouraged her to travel to many historical landmarks and museums throughout Europe to gain a deeper appreciation of the Arts. She is blessed with two magnificent sons who make her life more meaningful. She enjoys reading all different types of genres, traveling, live music, fine food and a glass of red wine. She splurges on candy, chocolate and French fries.
