Thank you for taking the time to visit my website! Where do I begin? I grew up in a home with a father who worked to support a family of three children and a wife. I was the oldest child and have been a survivor/worker my entire life. I remember a life lesson from my father, “Dad, why does it hurt so much when you tell the truth?” “Because Little One, he answered, you never have to worry about what you said because it was the truth!”

Life wasn’t easy, but it created who I am today. Being in the military had it’s low and high points, with the high point being meeting my first husband. My son, Christopher Joseph – CJ as my father called him – was my world and still is, despite being thousands of miles apart. I have been blessed with two identical twin granddaughters. But then back more than 40 years ago, I met my fourth-grade sweetheart and we married. Oh my goodness, life was amazing for 35 years. Retired from the military, both my son, daughter and son in law in the Air Force, two more grandchildren (now grandson 21 and in the Air Force and granddaughter 17 and in ROTC!)
