Hello, my name is Kathy. I am a 50 year old married mother of two teens. We have a French bulldog named Chuck and two Gecko lizards...Janet and Lizzie. I enjoy my wonderful family!
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am an accountant and just started a new job last year after being at my previous job for nearly 20 years. Big changes!
My focus word for 2021 is PEACE.
