Life Outside UD

Family, friends and faith encompass my life outside of work. I spend a lot of time engaged in church activities; helping with mission projects, serving as lay leader etc. I love entertaining and having friends and family around, but I also enjoy quiet time with a book or watching movies. With my husband and three sons, we enjoy biking and camping at the shore. Our family owns a ski shop and though I don't ski as often as I used to, skiing is still a family activity that is a part of our lives.
