I am 32 years old and have been married to my wonderful husband, Michael for 9
years. I was born in Massachusetts and moved to Alaska when I was 7 years old.
I graduated from the University of Wyoming in 2002 with my Bachelor of Arts
degree in elementary and early childhood education.
Immediately following graduation, we moved to Wilcox, Arizona, where I taught
1st grade for one year. We then moved to Texas in 2003, where I taught
kindergarten at a private school and then second grade at a public school for
five years. This past summer, my husband and I moved to New Hampshire, where I
am now the Accelerated Math and Enrichment (PACE) teacher at Grinnell
Elementary School in Derry.
My parents and siblings are all still living in Alaska. I have a 23 year old
sister named Sarah. She is an amazing singer and actress. She is married and
has two adorable daughters, Lily and Khayri. My brother, Eric, is 22. He
recently earned his degree in computer technology, and works on computers for
the mines in northern Alaska.
