Get To Know Your JSAer:
What does the word “family” mean to you?
Family is an all-encompassing word to represent individuals (animals included!) who share great love for and loyalty to each other. Whether born into a family by blood, or falling into a family by fate, a family is a group of people who will ‘have each other’s backs’ at any time, and who seek to grow, love, learn and laugh together in this journey called life. I have many families in my life – the family I was born into, the family I gained through marriages, the family I MADE (hubby and kids!), my friends-family, my band family, and of COURSE, my JSA family.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
When it comes to living my life, I love to make every moment count. Two years ago, I took the leap and accepted an invitation to be lead female vocalist in my band (Roc-Kin’-On). We are a tight-knit group of five and I love how we are growing within our local music scene. It makes my soul happy to sing, especially with a great group of talented musicians at some pretty awesome local venues, surrounded by family, friends and fans!
In my downtime, and to ensure I am keeping calm in my crazy busy life, I love to journal. I have over 40 journals I’ve kept throughout my lifetime, including journals I write in frequently for my children.
While I do appreciate some good alone time (required for journaling!), I am most happy when I am surrounded by my family and friends – just open a bottle of wine, share a good app or two and top it with fascinating conversation and laughter, and my evening is made!
