Aram lives in Mooresville. Autumn is a freshman at UNCC. I also have 2 grandchildren. Kane lives here and he is 4. Charlotte was born July 8 in Phoenix. I am also the proud mom of 3 dogs and 1 cat- Lucky, Trixie, Buster and Mocha the Cat. Adam and I love to go to the beach and New York City. I am a huge Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan and I love Duke basketball, UVA football, the Mets and the Giants. I love to read and shop! I also enjoy listening to music. Chris Daughtry is my favorite!
