    I proudly sit on the Board of Animal Samaritans, a non-profit animal welfare organization in the Coachella Valley; my husband and I donate many hours of our free time socializing the cats and dogs up for adoption at Animal Samaritans’ Adoption Center. We are the doting owners of two rescue cats from the organization and I would take home more if my husband wasn’t always the rational one in this regard.

    I also enjoy frequenting thrift shops, antique stores, and tiki bars to grow my collection of tiki mugs and general tiki ephemera. I have over 100+ mugs and am always on the hunt for more.
