Fun fact: I love baseball and one of my goals is to visit all 30 baseball stadiums. Because of my love of baseball, I have organized the softball team for North Country HealthCare for the last several years. When not watching or playing ball, I also enjoy cooking, gardening, hiking, camping and playing the harp. I am active in my church and community and am a master gardener.
