I have a deep-seeded love for God and Country. I come from a career military family. Like myself, my Father, three brothers, and husband are also Veterans and retirees from military service. Our parents raised us in a loving Christian home where respect, responsibility, discipline, and service to others was not only taught but expected.
I am a product of Volusia County. I was raised in Orange City. I attended Our Lady of Lakes Catholic Church in Deltona. I was schooled at St. Peter’s Catholic School in DeLand, Deltona Jr. High School, and DeLand Senior High School. I retired after serving 22 years in the United States Navy. I returned to Volusia County and returned to school. I graduated from Daytona State College as a Pastry Chef.
