Favorite thing about Charlottesville?
Everything!!! The people are so friendly and there are so many ways to enjoy Charlottesville. The town offers great dining, outdoor activities and an abundance of American history.
Favorite way to spend the weekend?
Gardening and spending time with family, friends, our 10 dogs and 2 donkeys.
Favorite thing about Southern Development?
Southern Development is more than a company, it is a tight knit team that works collectively to deliver a personalized home! The most enjoyable time we spend together is when the entire company lends a hand to build a Habitat for Humanity home. It gives all of us great reward as well teaching us more about construction. I have been very lucky to become friends with a number of our home owners and it really makes my day when they come to the model to say hello. In addition, my boss, Frank is one of the funniest people I have ever met. I am truly blessed to be part of a team that has fun together and takes great pride in what we do.
What is your favorite floor plan?
The Savannah II is my favorite floor plan, it is open and spacious with great flow and easy access.
What is the most exotic place you’ve ever been?
An African photographic safari in Kenya. The sights were breathtaking and to have the opportunity to see wild animals in their true environment gave me much greater respect for preserving their natural habitat.
The most unexpected event was at a reserve park when an elephant tried to get my camera film out of my back pocket. This was an elephant that had been orphaned and would not leave the reserve. The rangers would take him miles away only to find him back at the reserve by dinner time. He was very sweet but determined to get my film. It was rather a surprise to see an African elephant acting like a huge puppy… Guess who won? He did!
