Favorite pastime or something interesting about yourself:
If I’m not working I’m at home with my kids and husband. Once a month I take one day off to recharge by taking on a challenging hike by spending at least 6 to 8 hours tackling a great peak. There’s nothing like being in nature and challenging your mind & body to feel alive! I’m French Canadian and still speak French!
