So you wanna know about me…

My family has been featured on Erik Weihenmayer’s blog and website for living a “No Barriers” life. I was awarded “Woman of the Year”, by my local assemblyman in Southern California, for my community service through musical performance and advocacy. As a mom of an amputee, I am highly active within the amputee and disabled community, attending multiple events and camps throughout the year. Whether it’s in person, or social media, I consistently connect with other families and amputees.

I am currently working on publishing children’s books that features both fictional and non-fiction characters. Along with that journey, I am seeking out and sharing about all and any books that encourage positive disability representation. My goal is to spread awareness through literature.

For many years, I could be found on stage throughout Southern California with a 1940’s tribute group, at my local community theater, and at Disneyland Resort every Christmas in the Candlelight Processional. Presently, I am focusing on musical education and enjoy privately teaching piano and voice. 

I cherish my faith and commitment to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have served as a youth leader, women’s teacher, choir director and music chairman. 

I currently reside in Central Texas. My home is filled with toy cars, LEGO bricks and lots of noise as I raise three young boys with my high school sweetheart, Michael, my husband of thirteen years. 

Some fun facts…

Not the biggest fan of chocolate.

I love the color yellow.

I love busy cities. I find them exhilarating.

I don’t really like to bake, but I can make a mean snickerdoodle and chocolate chip cookie.
