 I am a native Mobilian and would not want to live anywhere else!  I have been married 17 years to my husband, Tony, who works in pharmaceutical research.  We have two beautiful sons, Paul, who is fifteen years old and a sophomore and DHS and Jude, who is ten years old.  We also have a wire-haired Dachshund named Gumbo. 
   In my spare time I love to read, spend time with family and friends, and travel.  I attend Saint Pius X Catholic Church where I act as a song leader for Sunday services.  I also enjoy watching and performing in local community theater. This is my 9th year at DHS.
