What I’m about to say may surprise people: I’m not from Charlotte. I was born in Brooklyn and raised in south Florida. People in Florida called me a Yankee and my New York relatives laughed at my “southern” accent. I have a Master’s degree from Florida State University (go ‘Noles!).

My husband Ryan and I have been masquerading as Charlotteans since moving here in 2006. We have a blended family with two daughters (19 and 3 years old), two dogs, and a cat. I came to FPC in 2014 as a part-time employee, then a member, and now they can’t get rid of me.
