After growing up in Orange County, California I met my husband Joel in October of 2001, at college, and it was love at first sight….for him. A year later we finally went on a date and quickly made up for lost time - we got engaged, graduated, and married in the next 2 years. Followed by the birth (and adoption) of four beautiful babies.


During all the changes we never gave up on our dreams (and God miraculously gave us the energy to pursue them)! Joel graduated with his PhD in Higher Education and I built a business that has worked for me to be a stay-at-home-working-mom. We even had time to be foster parents and adopt our precious twin boys!
