I am a proud NC native and have lived in Raleigh for 23 years! My best friend is my husband, Bill. We have three lovely daughters, a sweet and kind son-in-law, and are welcoming our granddaughter, Libby Rose, in November! Our dog, Marshall, is hoping we will rescue more pets soon, but, for now, we give him all our attention and love!
