She has always loved photography and has started looking at it in a more serious way over the last few years. She's done some work for the Beaver County Times, a few portraits and weddings for friends, and is currently looking into starting my own real estate photography business. Outside of photography, she is a Girl Scouts troop leader and an active member of the College Square Elementary PTA.
