A Little More:

I am a graduate from the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in the Humanities Area of Concentration. I met my future husband, Jason, playing on the same co-ed dek hockey team in 2004. We lived in Bethel Park for a few years before moving to Pleasant Hills in 2011. We got married a year later at Pleasant Hills Church. We have two kids, Emma (6), Noah (4) and a boxer named Lucia (named after my happy place). I have spent a majority of my working career in an upper management role in both the corporate and retail sectors. Spreadsheets have always been my best friend due to my need to be organized. I am a member of an adult small group with many wonderful ladies. I normally attend the 9:30am service on Sundays and volunteer to assist with Sunday school classes.
