Here’s a little JNC trivia: I love to teach country line dancing, I used to own my own DJ business, and I am a former on-air DJ. Can you say, “Extrovert!”?

Let’s Get Personal
Building trusting, collaborative relationships requires getting to know the person you working with. It’s not just what a person does while at work, but also how they treat the people around them and who they are outside of work that defines their character. Do you know their likes or dislikes? Are they great at what they do while remaining genuine and honest or are they great at what they do, but otherwise they aren’t a very nice person? Who someone really is, not just how good they are at their job is important to me, so here are a couple things about me that you won’t find on my resume:
Raised: I went to school and was raised in Mechanicsburg, PA, a suburb on the West Shore of Harrisburg.
Where I’ve lived: I have lived most of my life in Central PA. I raised my kids in Hershey and consider it my adopted hometown. I now live in the suburban East Shore of Harrisburg — about halfway between downtown Harrisburg and Hershey. Otherwise, I spent three-and-a-half years in Orange County, CA (lived in Placentia, worked in Anaheim Hills), and one year in the Philadelphia suburbs.
Family: I have two adult daughters, Rhiannon and Savannah. Rhiannon is married, a mom, owns her own pet grooming business. Savannah is a Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force stationed at Dover Air Force Base where she works in the JAG office as a paralegal. She also served in Security Forces as a cop and as a criminal investigator. My husband, Jim, serves in the Pennsylvania Air National Guard at Fort Indiantown Gap. I have two grandsons, Cory Jr. and Kasey, who are in elementary school and are very active in Hershey Youth Football and Wrestling (Trojan Pride Never Dies!). I attend most of their sports events and was the only female at a Hershey game the 2014 season to work the chain gang.
