About Me

about me-3

I'm a wife, a mother, a Christian, former RN, a sister, daughter,
and now stay at home mom after a long and fulfilling career as a NICU nurse.
I am new to photography.
I am the mother to a 26 year old son, a 9 year old daughter and a 5 year old son,
the 2 youngest born in China.

I'm a native Mid-Westerner who's favorite cities happen to be Chicago and San Francisco.
I've lived all over the country as an adult and really loved every place we have lived.
Growing up I loved school, reading books, drawing, and swimming.
I'm the oldest of 4 children and am still very close to my siblings.
I grew up in Illinois and Indiana.
My parents are  gracious and lovely people and I love them to pieces.
My mother is a former teacher who nurtured each of our talents and saw my gift was art.
Instead of majoring in art or design, I became a nurse.
As a nurse I helped to save lives and was also forever
 changed by the patients I cared for and loved deeply.

I'm a proud graduate of Purdue University!

I love fashion, design, art history, science, travel, books, the country of China and it's people.
And have a passionate heart for adoption and orphans.

I have had an amazing life and been blessed to experience so much and I'm so thankful for that.

On my bucket list:
To adopt again.
To travel to China and volunteer in an orphanage or Will's foster home.
Travel to Europe(never been before).
