Hobbies & Interests
Originally from Boston, Tina enjoys cheering on her favorite hometown teams, the Red Sox, New England Patriots, and of course her own BC Eagles. She’s an avid sports fan and looks forward to attending sporting events with her husband, Craig, and their two daughters, Avery and Samantha. Most weekends, you can find Tina cheering on her kids at their own sporting events and during “down time,” she and her family gravitate toward their happy place along the North Carolina shore.
