    About Me:
         Family is very important to me and a big part of who I am! My mom works in the Perry Local School District and my Dad is in the construction business. My older sister, Kelli 36, is a marriage and family counselor and my younger brother, Kyle 32, is a mechanical engineer! We are very close and all 2 years apart! Now you know how old I am ;). I LOVE spending time with my nieces Scarlet, Caroline, and Emma and my nephews Liam and Owen! My husband Dale and I got married October 29th, 2021 and bought our first home in Jackson! We also have exciting news! We are expecting our first child, a son named Lucas, in October! We love playing with our wonderful Fur-babies (cats), Willow and Finnley. Willow loves to play fetch (yes I throw her mouse and she fetches it and brings it back!) and Finn loves to get into everything! I love movies, music, art, and I love being outdoors too! I love going kayaking and being out on the water and boating and swimming.  I love to read and, yes, that is why our classroom theme is Harry Potter! My favorite Book Series.  I also LOVE going to concerts!
