I love hanging out at work with you every weekday. I was born and raised here in Central New York and am a graduate of Le Moyne College in Syracuse, NY. I have a degree in Communications. I love NFL Football, NCAA Basketball (GO ORANGE!!!), and I love to play golf. I am not great but hey, it's great to hit the links on a hot Summer day with a cold beer.
