BIOGRAPHY

I am a very out-going person who is not afraid to say what’s on the mind. Some people say that the truth hurts but telling the truth can also bring respect. I am not afraid to say how I feel or what I think on any matter. With me, what you see, is what you get!

Bowling has been my passion for most of my life and without it, I would not be the person I am today. I have bowled collegiately, internationally and professionally. Bowling has brought so many wonderful people into my life that I am thankful for each and every day. While bowling is a sport that no matter how much practice and hard work you put into it, it’s one that cannot be perfected. I work hard to become the best bowler I can be and the rest is up to the pins.

Outside of bowling, I love to stay at home with my dogs, Bucket and Teddie. Yes, Bucket… he is named after a spare. I also enjoy working out, playing cards, shopping and playing tennis. Although I am terrible at tennis, I enjoy it and enjoy watching it for hours. I also enjoy spending time with family. With as much travel as I do during the summer, it’s nice to just be home with my husband and dogs.

A quote that has stuck with me for a long time is: If you want big rewards, you have to take big risks. It would be nice if everything was just handed to you on a platter but sometimes you have to be willing to risk it all to succeed.
