Hobbies and Interests
When she is not busy penning her next article, she enjoys crocheting, reading, gardening and music. In fact, when she was just 10, her mother put a crochet hook into her tiny hands and the rest, as is often said, is history.
This introduction to a time-honored craft blossomed into a lifelong love affair with crafting with colorful yarns. Her friends, family and colleagues were soon overwhelmed with gifts of clothing, afghans, baby layettes and blankets, so she has partnered with agencies such as the American Red Cross and Crisis Pregnancy Centers to create and donate handmade items for expectant mothers.
