A typical day in my life is…

busy! And I love every minute of it. Coffee. Making breakfasts and packing lunches, school drop off, Mondays-Thursdays teaching 19 amazing 3-year-olds at preschool, followed by quick errands, school pickup, homework time, make dinner, family time, kiddo’s bedtime, PANDA work time, relax time-with my husband. Friday is the day I tie up all my loose ends from the week! Weekends are always planned to be relaxing, but always busy too!

I was born…

in Iowa City, IA.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the beautiful sunsets.

I’m listening to…

anything and everything on the radio and Frozen II soundtrack when my children are with me in the car.

My family…

is amazing.  I don’t know what I would do with out their love and support.

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

my grandmother who passed away at age 100.

One thing I cannot live without…

sparkling water.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a teacher.

I’m inspired by…

my three older sisters.

The one person who motivates me is…

not just one but three, my PANDA Co-chairs!

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

immediate answers, for children who are sick.   Families and patients deserve to know right away.  Research is key!

The perfect day would be…

drinking coffee while reading a book, lunch with friends, spending time with family, dinner with wine and a movie in the theater with my husband.

My first job was…

at Old Navy in Coralville, Iowa (brand new mall was built in 1998 in my next-door town which was a big deal)!

My favorite escape…

traveling to Sedona, AZ with my family.

My life…

is blessed.

I’m currently working on…

PANDA emails and preschool conference forms.

Always…

thinking of others.

Never…

forgetting that family comes first.

Favorite Quote…

“Whoever is happy will make others happy too.” – Anne Frank

Biggest Dream…

travel the world with my husband and children with no time limit.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

dirty dishes left in the sink overnight.
