  • Other Interests

    I have a deep passion for blues music, broadly defined. My husband and I are partners in the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise, and we host blues concerts in our home. The concerts allow me to indulge in my love of cooking, as I plan and prepare dinner—with lots of help—for all of the 80+ guests who attend.
