Where do you live?
I live in Lake Monticello with my husband, two children, and shih tzu.
How long have you lived in Fluvanna? What brought you here?
I’ve lived in Fluvanna for 19 months. My husband’s job brought us out to this area from Richmond. I didn’t know much about this area before we moved here. While I enjoy living in the city I have grown to like the slower pace Fluvanna brings.
Tell us about your work.
I work for Media General, a media company headquartered out of Richmond. I work with their ad operations department.
Tell us about your family.
I’ve been married to my husband Ben for 12 years. We met and were married at Virginia Tech. After one year of marriage we added a shih tzu to our lives and she was spoiled until our first child came along in 2007: a son, Andrew. In 2009 we added a daughter, Madelyn.
Tell us about a hobby you have.
I enjoy scrapbooking. I started this hobby in college and my stash of paper, stickers, and tools has grown considerably. While I don’t have as much time now to devote to scrapbooking, I still get books done every year. My kids love looking back at what they did throughout the years and that makes it all worth it.
Describe one of the highlights of your life.
Besides the typical marriage and kids I would say being there when my niece was born. My brother-in-law was deployed when my twin sister’s baby was due. My son and I flew across the country to Washington. We were there for two weeks before my niece decided she was ready to make her debut. We stayed for another week after she came home. It was so special to be the first to hold her and to be there for my sister.
