Married to my husband, Andrew. We have two daughters, Lauren (28...gulp) and Allie (17). We also have two adopted "children", Yadi the German Shepherd and Nova the Greyhound. Yadi is named after my favorite athlete, Yadier Molina, catcher for St. Louis Cardinals. We have lived in Colorado since 2008.
BS in Family & Consumer Sciences Education, with an Elementary Endorsement from Colorado State University. Currently working on my Masters.
Born and raised in Collinsville, Illinois, just 20 minutes east of St. Louis, Missouri.
I enjoy cooking unique, healthy meals, hiking and kayaking with my family and friends and spending quality time connecting with nature.
