Something Fun about Yourself : I love all types of music and singing in the car. I love my southern roots and drink my tea “sweet.” I love getting to spend time with my two precious grandbabies.
Working with individuals and business clients, to tailor a program for their protocol needs, as well as assisting other business colleagues with their programs and/or events, are my favorite “work” things to do.
