I was raised in Houston Texas within View of Mission Control at NASA. I joined the Army in 1980 at the tender age of 17 and served four years stationed in Germany. After serving, I went back to Houston and attended the University of Houston earning a BA in Applied Visual Design. I have spent the majority of my life living in Vermont but with children raised and scattered around the world my husband and I decided to see what the US had been up to in the years since we moved to the Northeast. After traveling from one end of the country to the other and back again we decided we would check out Lexington Virginia and it’s been love at first sight!
