Three fun facts about me: (1) When I was little and got any sort of money, I spent it on index cards, paper clips, rubber stamps with ink pads, and file folders so we could play “office” instead of “house” or “school.” I obviously had an early calling as both of my parents worked in factories and I had never even been in an office. (2) My husband and I had our Ancestry DNA done and spent a bunch of time researching our ancestors. I am the 24th great-granddaughter of Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland. (3) I am a 23-year survivor of cancer.
