Though banking is my career calling, I once thought I’d be a writer. I have right and left brain struggles each day, and I turn to cooking, gardening, and home brewing as creative outlets. As a Master Gardener, I’m constantly planning my vegetable garden and tweaking my landscape, and my husband and I create and test new brewing recipes that we share family and friends.
