I'm a wife, a mother, a woman, and a business person. I have a beautiful family that continues to challenge and propel me to be a better person. I've been married to my high school sweetheart, Jeff, for 17+ years and we have two rambunctious little boys, Derek 7 and Dylan 5.
A big part of my life is about my youngest son Dylan. Dylan has MED13L Syndrome, which is a rare genetic condition that causes him to be developmentally disabled. I make a monthly donation to the MED13L Foundation in honor of helping research and doing more for these rare genetic diseases. Other than being behind, Dylan is a thriving little boy! I have assembled an amazing team to help in his care and challenge him to be his best.
While that wasn’t in the plan, owning my own business always has been. And working has been a wonderfully positive thing in my life. I love the balance of working and challenging myself professionally while still having the flexibility to adventure with and care for my family. Life is about balance.
