I accepted the role of Secretary last year and have continued on working with this amazing team of parents. I also still chair the Spiritwear committee. I am a full time working mother of two and have lived in Carriage Trails for 6 years. My daughter Gabbey is in 3rd grade this year and my daughter Abigail is an 8th grader at Stivers School for the Arts. I have been married 25 years and we are both avid dog lovers.
