OUTSIDE THE OFFICE
Eden’s greatest source of joy are her two sons, Anthony and Harrison. They keep her very busy and always entertained! The rest of Eden’s heart belongs to her 4-legged feline babies. She volunteers as a foster mom for Saving One Life, a valley-based cat rescue and sanctuary that provides shelter, medical care, and hospice care to stray, abandoned, and surrendered felines that are at a high risk for euthanasia until permanent, adoptive homes can be found. Eden is deeply passionate about this cause and strives to help educate the public about the importance of spaying and neutering family pets with the hope to someday eliminate euthanasia in shelters. When she is not driving the Mom Taxi or wrangling litters of kittens, Eden loves traveling and cruising the world to exotic places and making scrapbooks of her many family adventures!
