She has two grown children and enjoys travelling (anywhere) with her husband, as well as theatre, film, hiking in the beautiful bay area, and finding new restaurants to try.  She is looking forward to joining Leadership San Jose to learn from leaders in different industry sectors and find new ways to support the community.
