She spends most of her free time volunteering for the many activities that her boys are involved in, as well as being involved with her church and community. When she is not volunteering with her family and her church, she enjoys reading and taking her dog for walks. Someday she and Dan hope to be able to travel and spend time exploring the many places there are to see in the world.
