My interests include many activities that are consistent with staying healthy and spending time with family. They include playing tennis, pickleball, golf (just starting golf- it's ugly!), boating, hiking, and mountain biking. I also enjoy snowmobiling in Wyoming with my dad. Another passion is flying- I became a pilot in 2011. I fly just about every week for business and the occasional fun trip. One tradition has been to head to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado every year to climb to a mountain peak of 14,000 feet. These are called "14ers".
