I was born and raised in Illinois. Most people immediately think of Chicago, but I grew up in an area on the border of Iowa and Illinois known as the Quad Cities. The Quad Cities is made up of Davenport and Bettendorf, IA and Moline and Rock Island, IL.
I met my future husband while I was on vacation in California and he was in the Navy stationed in San Diego. We corresponded during his time at sea. After a lengthy courtship, we were married. We then moved from Illinois to his home state of New Mexico to be with family and go to New Mexico State University. After his time at NMSU, we moved to Colorado and then to Utah.
When I'm not working, being with family and friends is what matters most. You can usually find me travelling as much as I can, biking, hiking or watching and playing most sports (GO CUBBIES, DA BEARS & RSL).
