Hi, I am Leah Jones and I am the events and project specialist at VSECU. I have a 1.5-year-old daughter who takes up all of my time. Together, we love gardening, crafting and puddle jumping. We have become "professional pintresters," meaning we DIY everything. It does not always come out great but it always makes some amazing memories. We love to share what we learn or what we find works. We hope you enjoy!
