Me and my husband Ryan have been married for about 2 ½ years now! My parents have been together for 40 years. I have a sister, a brother in law, and the world’s cutest  niece (Ruby), and my sister and her husband are in the process of adopting for the second time!

I read about 20 crime/thriller books yearly I but don’t have a favorite author.

Hidden talent:

I studied Russian in college! But I don’t remember much of it, sadly.


Fun fact: 

When I was 12, and my parents weren’t home, I drove a car into a dried-up lake across the street from our house, but I got it back in the driveway before they got home.
