Born in Clarksville, TN in 19 somethin’ it is no surprise that I am a country music fan. I am proud to also be an Army Brat. It is the reason I had the chance to live all over this great United States. But I am also proud to call New York and the Hudson Valley my home. I am not much of a cook but I love to try. Baking is out, it is to exact. I can mix up a mean martini, shaken not stirred. I am a dog person. Minnie Pearl my current canine has been with my husband and me since we rescued her in 2009. I love horses so much I went to college to get a degree in Equine Science. My favorite wonder of the world is the Grand Canyon. And if there was ocean front property in Arizona I would move there today.
