One line, huh? Well . . . I'm a family nurse practitioner, momma to two and bonus mom to three who's crazy about her husband. Whew . . . how was that? What? Too long? Do it again? No, I think it was OK? What? Huh?
Interests: Life would be dull for me without my family, my iPad, my retro Rebound bike, my saxophone, my love of reading and words, and my passion for my patients.
