In her free time, she loves spending time with her husband and daughter.  She is also passionate about animal rescue and spends a lot of time training her personal dogs.  Additionally, her family fosters dogs for a local organization, and they also have one rescue Dachshund and three rescue Pit Bulls of their own.
