My formative years were spent in Naples, FL where I learned to appreciate the beauty of Florida's west coast. Nothing beats watching a sunset from the Naples Pier. I graduated from the University of Miami with a bachelors degree in sociology. I met my husband while at a friends wedding (he was the groomsman I walked with) and married him 8 months later. He lived in Las Vegas, NV at the time so I moved there with him after the wedding. Eventually we moved to North Carolina which we decided was the perfect place to start a family. It appears relationships and families grow well in North Carolina. Four kids and fourteen years later we wouldn't call anywhere else home!
