I am a wife and mother first. As an outdoor enthusiast, I enjoy biking, hiking, jogging, boating, swimming, gardening, and photography.
I graduated from Northwest Nazarene University with an Elementary Teaching degree.

Like many northwest residents, I love exploring outdoors. I also have an affinity toward music, mochas, and mountains.

Fond memories growing up include the following: family gatherings, horseback riding, competing in gymnastics, basketball, and volleyball.

God has blessed me with a wonderful husband and three fun-loving kids.

I'm thankful for my upbringing. My parents not only lived out their faith, but also took my brother, sister and me to church. This is where I learned God's truth and love for people. At the age of four, I accepted Jesus as my Savior. He continues to teach and challenge me to embrace His ways and abundant life.
