I am married to the love of my life, Jason. He is a retired police officer and a 3rd degree black belt that now owns his own karate dojo. Together we have 4 adult children and 1 beautiful granddaughter, Indie Marie. Our oldest daughter and mother of our granddaughter is a cheer coach and full-timie student in nursing. Our oldest son is a property adjuster for Farmer’s Insurance. Our youngest daughter is a Lowe’s Pro-Specialist and full time business student. Our youngest son is in the Air Force. We also have a pomperanian dog and two cats.
When I’m not working, I love to remodel my house and work on crafts. My husband and I love to travel the United States. One of our favorite places to visit is Tombstone, Arizona and Laughlin, Nevada. Our goal is to go to Washington D.C. and take a cruise this year.
