I am a lifelong resident of the Altoona area and have been married to my husband, David, for thirty-one years. We have two sons, Christopher and Nicholas. I attended Penn State during our two football National Championships. I have worked as a music store manager, a stay-at-home mother, a church secretary, a stewardship assistant in Donor Relations and Special Events at University Park and now a Development Assistant at Penn State Altoona. I have volunteered as a Cub Scout and Boy Scout Leader, a religious education teacher and a travel assistant with a youth shooting team. My hobbies include gardening, travel, and spending time with my family. I also collect Polish Pottery.
