My family moved to Richmond when I was 9 years old, and I have lived in central Virginia ever since. I grew up with nine brothers and sisters and we continue to be close in our relationships. My father is still living, at age 92. I am a Mom to three grown sons, all of whom have become Eagles Scouts in the Boy Scouts of America. My husband and I have been married 28 years. I love gardening with my husband, canoeing and camping on the James, and spending time with my family.
