She is frequently called upon to offer workshops and as a motivational speaker. Her first fiction work, Southern Pines Sweet Tea Moments will be out later this year and might just be a tiny bit autobiographical.
She is passionate about the arts and arts education. She is a violinist and violist, performing with Symphonicity-The Symphony Orchestra of Virginia Beach for over 20 years and also maintains a private teaching studio.

Her daughters, Ashley and Elizabeth are her biggest passions as well as her best cheerleaders.
