I grew up in Abita Springs. It is a place that is very special in my heart. After working in many different parts of the country, I could think of no better place to raise a family. I love being close to my family and friends. I enjoy cooking, horseback riding, hiking, and playing the piano. I am a member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society and the Pastoral Council at St. Jane de Chantal Church in Abita. I am simply in love with animals in this world. It brings me so much joy to be able to help an animal in need and care for them with the dignity they deserve. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be able to bring my love of animals to a community that I love.
