I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay, crabbing, fishing, sailing, and building sand castles, tree houses, and secret gardens in the woods. After graduating from Southern, I attended Cook College, Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. There I got my BS Environmental Studies, competed for Rutgers Gymnastics, and met my husband, Mark.
Since then, I have worked as a naturalist, coached gymnastics, planted my vegetable garden in the shape of a labyrinth, sold organic eggs and chicken, and raised three children.
I returned to school for a MBA from Trinity DC, with an emphasis on Women in Leadership in 2008. I am the president/CEO of Williams & Heintz Map Corporation, the family printing company that was started by my great grandfather.
