Tell us a little bit about your professional background:

Upon receiving my CSR license, I decided to go into freelance reporting as a deposition reporter because of the flexibility. It was the perfect job when we were raising our kids. I worked exclusively for one agency for over 20 years. Once the kids were grown, I decided to go into the operations side of the business and eventually landed my position here at Aptus. In November of this year, it will be 7 years that I have been at Aptus!

My favorite meal is steak & lobster at Captain Jack’s in Sunset Beach.

On your bucket list:

I want to go to Europe in the next year or two with my daughter.

Recently checked this off my bucket list:

We went to Disneyland with our 4-year-old grandson without his mom or dad.  What a special memory ?

Best kept secret in your city:

We live in Dana Point, which is the dolphin & whale watching capital of the world.  There are tour boats that go out daily from the Dana Point Harbor.

Anything else you want people to know about you:

Besides my family, I have a tremendous love for animals – big & small.   At one time I had 2 pot-bellied pigs, 1 pony, 2 dogs, 3 cats and a guinea pig.  I have scaled down now to one cat, Charlie!
