About Me & My Family

If you want to know more about me, you’d have to meet my family–because I’m all about my family.

I have 3 amazing kids.

Summer is an art historian with expertise in street art and archiving. She is currently working at a local museum and consults on archiving projects. I think she must have picked up my love of art and history from all the times I dragged my kids to museums for homeschool field trips throughout their childhood.

Samantha loves science. math, and sculpture. She’s super logical. She is into video games and sewing clothing she has designed. They are mostly cosplay. She has also won awards for the duck decoys she carves,

Matt is brilliant. He plays the piano and loves art. Are you noticing a trend? All of my kids love art in some shape or form! He has been volunteering at the local library for several years. After college, he will either become a librarian or a tattoo and piercing artist.

I’m a widow

My husband, Dan was a Realtor and pastor. Doctors diagnosed him with stage IV lung cancer in 2012. He lived with cancer for 7 years and died on April 26, 2019.

I write fiction. It’s not published yet, but I am working on a mystery novel (Or 3). I also write full time, as an SEO Content Writer. That means that I write website content for a web development company. It is thrilling to be able to work my dream job with a fantastic team of people.
