What's one thing people might not know about you?
I lived in Hot Springs, South Dakota (an hour south of Mt. Rushmore) before moving to Roanoke where my father took the job of Director of the VA in Salem and we lived on the VA grounds while I was in high school.

Walking with friends, biking, spending fun evenings in the Grandin Village, reading and spending time with friends and family.
When you think about North Cross, what makes you proud to be part of the school community?
I value the caring and nurturing atmosphere at North Cross. It was a great place for our sons to go to school. North Cross provided them leadership opportunities, both academically and athletically, they would not have received at a large public school.
