    I am as busy in my personal life as I am in my professional life. In addition to caring for my own ragtag collection of rescued animals, I volunteer my Saturdays to care for dogs at the SAGA Humane Society. I also provide time and energy to help support other organizations that address issues I feel passionate about, including human trafficking, HIV awareness and protecting the environment.

    When I truly want some down time or simply to de-stress, I enjoy snorkeling or the challenge of a complex jigsaw puzzle.
