I passionately believe strong people stand up for themselves, but stronger people stand up for others. Bullying is personal for me and now that my children are elementary and middle school ages- I am passionate about it more than ever. I am a voice for children and on a mission to make them "stronger than bullying".
As a mother of three amazing children (Connor, Brie and Aden), I sincerely enjoy balancing it all. Always putting family first, you'll likely catch me on the fields most weekends, as they all are quite active in a variety of sports. We have a dog, 2 cats, 2 ferrets, a horse and a plethora of fish making for a busy household, but one that is forever grounded and full of love and compassion. As a family we value the art of giving back and embellishing our charitable side is something we all enjoy and love to be creative in doing. It is a blessing to show my children how important it is to have a purpose, make a difference and help those in need. I'm looking forward to the next chapter as our family is always game for new ways to impact our community!
