I live with my husband and our four sweet felines: Vladimir ("Mister Meer"), Percy, Bastian, and Fred. We also foster cats and kittens through a local animal shelter. My hobbies include reading, writing, filming and editing short movies, listening to music, dancing to ZUMBA routines, visiting historical landmarks, playing with my lovable cats, and spending time with my family and friends!
