Raised by my mom and grandpa in rural Illinois, I’m a high school teacher turned WAHM. My trio, Bo (7), and twins, Clara and Anna (5), keep me on my toes! They love school and are involved in a variety of activities including piano, dance, and swim team.
I am as eclectic as they come – in my interests, my friends, and my life. My love for Instagram, DDPYoga, desserts, reading, and my family, combined with a Type-A personality, make me a force to be reckoned with. Luckily, despite my many quirks, I met the love of my life in a college history class and married him on Valentine’s Day 2004.
When I’m not driving children to their various activities, I’m teaching Political Science full-time for a major online university, teaching online for the local community college, and working as a freelance editor and writer – all while wearing yoga pants in my home office. In my free time, I also attend graduate school online to obtain my doctorate in Organizational Leadership with a concentration in corporate training and e-learning. *Graduating in 2018!*
While I’ve written in the blogosphere since 2006 (this started as an infertility blog…), I’ve found that life has taken over during the last several years allowing me less an less time to capture the memories I want to preserve. I still try to post at least monthly here at Sticky Feet and occasionally post recipes at Five Wooden Spoons, however, most of my online time is devoted to teaching and writing professionally.
