Hello everyone! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my page! Here is a little bit about me!
I am living my dream! Ever since I was in sixth grade, I wanted to be a teacher!! Working full-time in the military, it took me 13 years to get my degree, but I fiinally graduated in 2016 from Old Dominion University in Virginia with a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. I retired from the United States Air Force in October 2016, after 20 years of service as a Medical Logistics Supervisor. I am blessed to have been able to serve my country. I have traveled to over 20 countries and I am not done yet!
I am married to my husband Ryan and a mother to four children: Naomi-22, Joshua-20, Emelia-14, and Madison-12. I also have two cats named Tessa and Max and two German Shepherds named Maikoh and Bear. After I retired, we moved to Port Charlotte; which was about three years ago. I was born in Falls Church, Virginia; however I grew up in New England. I lived in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Maine, but I call Maine home. I love the mountains and the beach. One day I will buy a cabin in the mountains and call that my forever home.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Food: Indian, Greek, Mexican
Drink: Coffee or Iced Tea
Color: Yellow and Pink
Book: The Bible
Sport: Football- Patriots!!
Animal: Manatees/Sea Turtles
Hobby: Spending time with my family, playing games, being outside, crafts
