Biography

“Love life and joyously live each day to its ultimate good,” (Wilma Wilson Sharp, 1933) captures my philosophy of passionately living life to its fullest.

My personal interests and hobbies nurture my curious, adventuresome, reflective, creative, and caring nature. I am fascinated with technology and gadgets, love to wander around hardware stores, and am an avid sports spectator. Capturing my moments through photography, tending the flowerbeds around our home, driving my car, and traveling to places near and far. Impromptu gatherings with friends, baking treats to share with others, and decorating our home for each celebration and holiday. Laughter, sun on my face, and the warmth of an out-of-the-way island beach. Being there for IOM TT motorbike racing, listening to music, whale watching, and holding hands with my husband when we go walking. The peace and serenity of breathing in the moment on our deck overlooking the Tennessee River. Ahh, this is living life to the fullest.
