I am a native of Kansas and grew up in the capital of Kansas, Topeka. I recieved a Bachelors of Arts from Washburn University in 2005. My husband and I moved to sunny California in 2007. I attended the University of Redlands in 2010 where I received my teaching credential. I have two dogs named Zoie and Maggie, who at the time are our children. In my free time I enjoy doing activites outside, shopping and reading. I love living in California because you can visit the mountains and the ocean all in one day. Couldn't do that in Kansas.
