She is the single mother of two amazing and sassy children, who have become the reason for everything she does. Her favorite things to do include outside time with her kids, any time she can get with her family, and laughing with her friends. She also enjoys quiet evenings in front of a fire with a good book and occasionally painting.

That some achieve great success is proof to all that others can achieve it as well
