Your scariest moment: When I was told Phlynn may have a heart condition during an ultrasound and I was transferred to Hershey Medical Center

Your first memory: My father dressed up as Santa to surprise me. I asked Santa why he had the same pinky ring as my dad. He wore gloves every year after that!

Trait inherited from parents: Work ethic

Piece of advice that you live by: No matter what you do for a living, you can always use your craft to help someone else. God gave you two hands. Keep them busy by doing good.

Who needs a hug? Everyone working from home and all of our front-line workers!

Five minutes with: Eleanor Roosevelt

What skill or lesson would you like to learn? I would love to learn to sew and knit better than I do
