Follow your dreams and never give up
I have enjoyed art since childhood. I live in th beautiful Hocking Hills region, and have worked in the blue-collar industry most of my life. I love writing and have a special interest in historical Southeast Ohio. In addition, I enjoy oil and acrylic painting, traveling and sewing.
When not exercising my hobbies or working outside my home, I spend time with relatives, my dogs Jasmine and Scooter, and volunteer my time within the community. I am a member of the Hocking Hill’s Arts and Craftsmen Association, The Hocking County Historical Society and Museum, and the Hocking Hills Regional Welcome Center. I am a mother of three and grandmother of eight. I believe in family values and following your dreams
