I was Born and raised in North Haven Connecticut, I moved to Arcadia FL in January of 2004 months before Hurricane Charley hit. From a very young age I always knew I had the love for humanity and a spiritual side to me that has always stood out. I live every day with a purpose. I love all animals and nature and working with others. Knowing I can make a change in someone’s life is more than words can describe. I thoroughly love my profession and those around me. In my free time I love spending time with my two Children our four-legged fur babies and my Significant other. We enjoy movies, drawling, baking, and traveling when given the opportunity. I take photos of family, friends and nature as memories are what we have, something so simple brings the most amazing things in life.
