Mara is a Northern Virginia resident and learned early on the value of hard work, family, and helping others! She is very handy and enjoys fixing things around the house. If she isn't tinkering around the house, she is hanging out with her two pooches. When an opportunity presents itself, she loves to travel! Mara has visited Peru, Mexico, Costa Rica, Chile, US Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, St. Lucia, Barbados, and tries to go skiing at least twice a year.
