  • 36 year old Senior IT Education Specialist
  • Crafty nerd
  • A little slow in getting her driver’s license, but when she did, she found out she absolutely loves to drive
  • Spent six years scooter commuting before getting her driver’s license
  • Really enjoys cleaning up cars inside and out, and making them sparkle (and enjoys washing scooters too)
  • Can’t go anywhere without music of some sort playing
