Fun Facts About Me
I love to travel and learn about new places.  One of my most memorable experiences was spending a semester abroad at the Technical University of Budapest in Hungary.  It was a wonderful opportunity to get to know people from other cultures and to visit several Eastern European countries.  Downhill skiing is another passion of mine, and I’m trying to convince my daughter that it really is fun once you get the hang of it.  I grew up in the White Mountains and love to go back often with friends and family to enjoy the beautiful natural resources that the area has to offer.
