    Ms. Estevez considers herself “family driven,” and loves hanging out with her one-year-old son, Cason, and living in the Seacoast Region. “My favorite seasons are fall and summer,” she says, “but no matter what the season, I love finding new places to eat in the area.”

    When not at work or with her son, Ms. Estevez enjoys shopping and going to the beach. “And when the time is right, I’d dearly love to go on a tropical vacation!”
