I'm a preacher's kid so I moved around quite a bit. Originally from New England, my family moved to Pennsylvania before coming to Forest Park. I was 12 when we moved to the Cincinnati area. My first memory, after moving here, is crying in the back of a restaurant. I decided I hated Cincinnati. I told my family that I would leave as soon as I turned 18. I am now the last person in my family left in the area. I love Cincinnati. It is now my "home" and I can't imagine raising my family anywhere else. I'm a graduate of Winton Woods High School and have a nursing degree from Miami University. I married Rusty in 2009. We settled in northern Kentucky. We have four children: Molly, Spencer, Rogan, and Emmett. I am a stay at home. Before my days as a stay at home mom, I worked as a registered nurse in inpatient oncology. Every day can be a struggle and my hopes are to reach other parents to let them know they are not alone in this crazy journey called parenthood. I am a coffee addict with a love for church, baseball and Skyline chili.
