A typical day in my life includes

I am always surrounded my kids!  I love kids and am passionate about education.

I was born

in Scottsdale Arizona, at Scottsdale Osborne Hospital. 

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is the water.  I love spending time paddle boarding at any lake I am get to.

I’m listening to…

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

My family…

is everything to me.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Jesus!

One thing I cannot live without

I cannot live without Starbucks.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a postman, so I could drive a cool jeep with the steering wheel on the wrong side and wear shorts to work every day!

I’m inspired by…

my father, and my son.

The one person who motivates me is…

my son.  He inspires me everyday with his joyful enthusiasm, zest for life, and his fearless thirst for new experiences.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

words like jealousy, hatred, comparisons.

The perfect day would be…

about 75 degrees, sunny, clear, and nothing on the calendar.

My first job was

I was a “Charles in Charge” for a family with 4 kids.  As a high schooler, I picked them up and brought them to school every day, picked them up from school and took them to all their activities, and then hung out with them at home until their parents arrived.  It taught be some basic teaching and parenting skills well before I would ever be a parent.

My favorite escape…

Carlsbad, California.

My life…

is exactly how I like it.

I’m currently working on…

my doctorate at Creighton University.

Always…

be kind.

Never…

be mean.

Favorite Quote…

“Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as you were told, so that you may win the respect of outsiders and not be dependent on anyone” – Paul, 1. Thessalonians 4:11-12

Biggest Dream…

a getaway place in Carlsbad, CA, Bondurant, WY, and NYC, NY!

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who say “must be nice…”, people who ‘reply-all’ too much, and adults who try to bully others.
