I was married to my high school sweetheart and best friend, Ben. We were together for 25 years. I lost my husband to pancreatic cancer in December 2017. We have been blessed with 2 amazing children together, a son and a daughter. Our son is 19 years old and our daughter is 12. In our spare time, we enjoy anything outdoors. Our family is active in our church, we love to hunt, fish, boat, and barbeque. I enjoy reading, cooking, and spending time with my family. I am a huge football fan and love playing fantasy football. I have also become an advocate for pancreatic cancer research and fundraising.
After graduating high school, I went to Temple College to obtain my business management degree. I graduated with my associates degree and paused my education to focus on my family. I was a childcare director for 10 years as I have always had a love for children. It is what led me to obtain my teacher certification. I completed my education at Grand Canyon University.
