A little about me
Wife, Mom, Daughter, Sister. Born & raised in Waterloo. Went to the University of Northern Iowa to study education. Met the most amazing person in my life my junior year of college. Married him 6 months later on the hottest day of July, 1999. "When you know, you know". 2 boys, Maxwell and Cooper. Can't imagine life without them. They bring more joy to my life than I knew I could ever experience. Lived in Des Moines for 10 years. Started my teaching career in Adel. Taught 3rd grade for 2 years. Stayed home with my boys for the next 8 years. Those years spent at home were the hardest, but most joyful. Moved back to Waterloo and began work at AWRE. Good to be home. Truly blessed.
A few of my favorites
My stinkin cute husband, Josh. Maxwell & Cooper and their wild, but tender-hearted selves. My cockapoo - Dungy. A little JT (Justin Timberlake). A little Kenny Rogers. A good cup of coffee. Decorative pillows. Buffalo Wild Wings - Chicken tender salad with Asian Zing. Watching movies and eating pizza with my family on Friday nights. Coke on ice - especially in an airplane cup (you know the little plastic ones.) North Face gear (whatever the season). Heartland Vineyard Church. My parents who have given so much love and are a constant in my life. My sassy, but sweet sisters and sis in-laws. My 7 nieces and 3 nephews who are full of personality!
