Sharon and her husband have four dogs and care for a colony of feral cats. Something she gladly shares is that she would never make a good employee as she enjoys working independently far too much. Sharon proudly lives in Columbus, OH and adores this city. “It offers a lot for everyone, but still maintains a smaller city feel.” She also misses The Continent, a concept before it’s time.
