What has been your favorite SunFest experience/moment?

I think my most favorite experience/ moments with SunFest is standing on the accessibility stage looking out at the crowd enjoying themselves and thinking to myself that all of us volunteers make this happen for them. Can’t help looking in total amazement!

When you’re not volunteering at SunFest, what are you doing?

When I am not volunteering I work in medical billing and coding for a rehab center in Lantana called Family Center for Recovery. I love taking my baby Bentley to the beach. I enjoy cruising and spending quality time with the family. I love dining out and trying new restaurants.

What, or who, are you a “closet” fan of?

I think I am a closet fan of surprises. I really like them but want to know when they are coming! LOL

My favorite Friday night watering hole is Waterway Cafe. Almost every Friday night you will find me there.
