About me

Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Wife, Mommy to 4 children (including triplets)
Location Minnesota, United States
Introduction I am a full time Mommy to four children (one plus triplets). Wife to my college sweetheart (married in 1991). I have a degree in nursing (RN) and worked in Pediatric Hospice for years (until our oldest was born). I am a full-time Mommy. I stay involved in non-profit groups and do public speaking each year. I recently moved from a place I love to a place I never expected to be. Life has a way of being unpredictable, but I find that I grow the most when challenged. I find strength in faith, prayer and the love and support of family and friends.
Interests I like being behind a lens. Photography has been a pursuit of mine since childhood (when I made my first box camera). Our children have become my muses. I work with polymer clay to create one of a kind art dolls. I suppose I am an amateur sculptor. I like well written poetry and stories, photography, art, eating well and live music. If that could all happen at once, even better!

Aren't papier mache cuts the worst?

Yes, but at least the starch works as a band-aid!
