Degrees and Certifications:
My formal education is from Purdue University with a B.S. in Child development and Family studies. My husband and I grew up in the same area (South Bend, IN) and we met our freshman year of College at Purdue University. Finding a new job brought us to the North Texas area where we have been for the last 18 years.
I have 8 siblings who all live out of state (Georgia, Florida, Indiana, and Wisconsin) and I have 3 children. My oldest is a girl who has graduated from Texas A & M, and is attending her first year of Vet School. My middle son is a Freshman at OSU, loves playing basketball and wants to be a professional pilot. My youngest son is a Junior at McKinney High school and loves learning different languages and photography.
A few of my Hobbies include, gardening, craft projects and taking nature walks/ hikes. I have travelled to a couple of different national parks (Glacier National, Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Giant Sequoia, Yosemite and Appalachian mountains) where I was able to walk a portion of the Appalachian trail, look at a buffalo head on from inside my car and feel the wonderment of melting water from a glacier. This year I will be returned to Yellowstone to complete a 11 mile hike which was amazing!
