I love to travel throughout the United States and Western Africa specifically Ghana. I run and work out and be active in my church. I continue to dedicate my time working with children and families to help prevent crime and build good family relationships. I love the outdoors, sports, animals, reading, dance, and baking. I started my yoga practice, I'm learning to play golf and English style horseback riding.
