Personal Life and Interests

I love being active!
A good work / life balance is very important to me.
My main interests are playing tennis, golfing, and hiking.
I love being outside!

I recently took a trip to Michigan’s UP (Upper Penninsula) and hiked the Porcupine Mountains with a 35lb pack for four days alongside two awesome friends.

Also recently, my husband and I canoed 60 miles down the Current River in the Ozarks of Missouri, camping along the way. Both trips were a blast and great experiences!

We live in a gorgeous world! I want to see all of it!

I’m also a huge sports junky!  I have a goal to visit every Big Ten stadium and arena at some point.  I’m only halfway through but working on it

My oldest son and I went to his first sellout game at Mackey Arena last November! That was a highlight of sports spectating for me – getting to share my favorite team, playing my favorite sport, with one of my favorite people!

Then a couple of months later, both of my boys and I took a last-minute trek up to Evanston to catch Purdue squeak out a mid-season thriller against Northwestern. I can now mark Welsh-Ryan Arena off the list!

My People!

My life is centered on my two teenage boys and my husband of 19 years. My boys are active in school, sports, church and social activities. My husband and I love traversing the state watching them compete, hosting their friends at our house, and experiencing new places with them. 
Soon they’ll be gone and off on their own adventures. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed sharing ours with them!
