At 35 years old and still trying to figure out who I want to be when I grow up. I am a USAF Veteran, now stay at home wife and mother. I have been married to my husband for 14 years, and he is Active Duty Air Force. We are raising two beautiful boys. Because of our family dynamic, and our oldest child's unique needs, we currently teach them at home. I am also a passionate advocate for women's health and rights. And I lead an initiative to provide free feminine hygiene products to homeless and poor women and girls. My downtime is spent outdoors; hiking and walking. I am a voracious reader. I have found a new passion for writing and helping families like mine.
