I grew up in Michigan and graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. After working for Lockheed Missiles & Space Company in Sunnyvale California for five years, I was transferred to Germany to work as a thermal analyst.
My husband and I moved to Roane County, Tennessee in 1994 and built our house. Our son, now 20, grew up in this paradise and intends to see the world, but plans to return here some day and build a house right here where he started!
