What was the last gift you gave someone? Silhouette of my girls from Disneyland to my in-laws.
Favorite holiday: Easter
If you could live in another country for a year, which would it be? Without question Italy. Specifically- Rutigliano, Bari. I have family there.
Favorite sports team: I don’t follow sports. My favorite band is AC/DC.
What’s the one song you’d like to delete from your children’s playlist right now? I play music that I like around my kids so I like what they listen to.

You have found yourself with an evening sans kids. What do you do? Go out for a sophisticated meal and see live music.
Anything else you’d like to add about yourself? I love the Mothers Club! When I moved here from Vancouver almost 5 years ago I did not know a soul and had never heard of Novato. Everyone I met suggested the Mothers Club. I have made my closest friends through the club and am thankful for all the fun experiences I have had with my family at the great events.
