I love living, playing, and working in Ocean County.

There's a little something for everyone in Ocean County - the boardwalks, delicious restaurants, great bars along the water, and even more of my favorite places in New Jersey.

Anyone knows that our sunrises are absolutely gorgeous and our cotton candy sunsets are just as gorgeous, especially after a storm. Ocean County is a great place to call home. The positives out way the negatives in Ocean County and New Jersey in my eyes.

I grew up in a little town in Pennsylvania. Yes, it was a charming little town, but we didn't have any beach or water near us. Our kids that grow up here in Ocean County do not even realize that there are some people in this country that have never seen the beach or the ocean. We take it for granted all the time.

Yes, we have traffic, especially in the summertime. The Parkway is usually always jammed going south on Fridays and a jam-up going north on Sundays. But, we always get through it. And, summertime brings a lot of traffic to other roadways from Memorial Day to Labor Day. We all know after Labor Day, it's our turn on our beautiful beaches.

New Jersey is a very special place to me. It's helped me become me. I met some of my best friends, my daughter was born here, I met my husband, and we just have fun because there is so much to do in New Jersey.
