I was born in Ajax, Ontario Canada but spent most of my childhood living in Delaware and Washington State. I met my husband while he was stationed in Washington and we began our military adventure together. In our 13 years together we have been to Germany, Missouri, South Carolina, and Virginia. We have two boys, Andrew and Jacob, who are complete opposites. I have worked as a professional childcare provider for several years, and I am currently finishing up my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Special Education. I have held different types of jobs, including butcher’s assistant, dog groomer, moving and relocation specialist, and truck driver, but working with children is my calling and where I am meant to be. I was not raised in a religious home, but have spent most of my adulthood striving to lead a Christian life and further my religious education. I am excited to continue my journey of faith and grow closer to God. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, trying new recipes, spending time outdoors, and enjoying a great cup of coffee.
