My husband and I have been married nearly 35 years. Together we enjoy spending time with our 2 adult children. With our free time we enjoy the peace and serenity of the north woods. I am blessed with supportive parents and treasure the friendship of my 2 sisters and 5 brothers. My career as a LPN on the Behavioral Health Unit for the past 32 years has been a positive experience. I learn from my patients as much as they learn from me. I consider my job a great blessing.
I am excited to join my brother Joe, a stroke survivor, and my sister Katy on the TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour. We will represent the National Stroke Association raising funds and awareness for this worthy organization. I plan to thoroughly enjoy the sights of New York City along with the thousands of other enthusiastic bikers. The primary reason I am joining the ride is to honor my brother Joe. The strength and determination he has shown to recover from his stroke has been an inspiration to our entire family; as well as his large group of friends. I am proud to call Joe my brother.
