Undergraduate degree from Syracuse University; graduate coursework completed at American University
I have been married to my husband for nearly 20 years. We have two teenagers, two rescue racer greyhounds and one puppy.
I have been very unhappy with the course of government since Obama was first elected into office in 2008. I believe it's easier to effectuate more positive public policy at the state level to further stop the incursion of the federal government in its excessive overreach.
