I have been a resident of Central for over 30 years and have grown to love the people and the community. I am proud to call Central my home. I'm enthusiastic about exercise. I walk 6 to 7 miles a day and swim as much as possible. I enjoy cooking, entertaining, and taking advantage of exercise technology at Central Physical Therapy. I'm also a huge LSU fan and attend all home football games. My pride and joy is my one daughter, Kelsey. Kelsey is a lawyer and communications director in Baton Rouge and will soon be married to my future son-in-law, George.
