I have been married to my husband, Gary, for 26 years. We have one son, who lives in Tulsa and is working on his MBA. We recently added a chocolate lab puppy named Duke to our family.
When I’m not in the classroom, I enjoy traveling, concerts and theater, spending time in the lake paddle boarding, and hanging out with family and friends.
