My husband, Dr. Chris Turner, is a voice professor in the music department at Stephen F. Austin University. (Go Lumberjacks!) We have two cats who seem to believe that we are their parents.
I love to ride horses Western style and am currently on a drill riding team with Roselake Ranch in Garrison. I’ve recently been promoted from the novice to the intermediate team. My goal is to work my way up to the advanced team!
I also like to read, especially fiction. I’m always appreciative of good book recommendations. I am a complete Tolkien/Lord of the Rings nerd.
I’m fascinated by nature. I once seriously considered changing my college major from music to biology, with thoughts of becoming an entomologist or a herpetologist. I also minored in Italian language and have been to Italy twice; I hope to go back again some day soon.
