Short Biography

I grew up in Elgin, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago) with 3 siblings (all older than I). I have spent my life in several places in the Midwest – Illinois, Indiana, North Dakota and Kansas. I met my husband while we were students at Manchester College in North Manchester, Indiana. We have two boys. As a family we enjoy music, traveling, reading, spending time outdoors and playing games.
