Where are you from and where have you lived?
I grew up in Michigan and went to college in Ann Arbor. I bought my first house in Birmingham, mi. After finishing my MBA at University of Michigan, I took a job with Dell in Austin, TX. I then moved to Annapolis to be with my husband. After my son was born we temporarily relocated to Dallas for 7 months and then moved back to the same house we have been in since I first moved here in November of 2004.

My 7-year old son is the kindest person I’ve ever met–just ask any finance council members if you don’t believe me!
