Jaci has always loved being outside, playing in the dirt, and being a part of the outdoors. Home movies exist of her covered in dirt and running amuck. Some of her fondest memories include playing soccer in a storm and sliding in mud and trying to keep warm in a blizzard with a championship soccer game on the line. She has always handled what Mother Nature has had in store. Her love of being outside has transformed into a love of gardening, which began with her helping her aunt grow zucchini for bread and tomatoes for sandwiches. In her spare time, Jaci enjoys baking sweets, reading, being outside, of course, riding bikes, and attempting to play the piano. Jaci’s favorite park is South Park and she is still amazed at the amount of green spaces Pittsburgh has to offer.
