Personal Interests:

My personal interests include golf, travel, and water aerobics.  Occasionally I will get a chance to read for pleasure and not just one of those "techie" computer books.  When I do it's usually a romance or mystery novel.  My favorite authors are Nora Roberts, David Baldacci, Michael Connelly, Dan Brown, Michael Crichton, and John Grisham.

I am a member of Executive Women's Golf Association of Orange County.  If you are interested in playing golf with some great women on the nicest golf courses in Orange County, come join us.  The annual kickoff event and member drive is usually held in March.  However, you may join at any time during the year.  For more information check out our website at http://ewgoc.org .
