Interest

My family is my number one interest.  I have been married for over 30 years to the same man with whom I share two adult children and five beautiful grandchildren.

My other major interest in my life is my church and the technology that I utilize there.  I run the audio and visual portions of the services and I am the webmaster of the church's website.

I design and setup websites as a side job to my educational career.  I love working with computers and also with young and not so young adults.
