I am a busy mom of FOUR kids! To be fair, my oldest is already 20 (yeah - I have been in NHPP forever!) so that leaves three kids who actually need me on the regular, they are 7, 5 and 3 (two boys and two girls). We also have 4 cats, 1 dog and 1 lizard! My family likes to call me a helicopter mom - doesn't bother me one bit !  I like to consider myself as hilarious, but still down-to-earth, a little crazy and outspoken - but I get the job done (eventually).   I know I am a little extra sometimes - you will soon find out!

I work more than a fulltime job downtown at a Nationwide law firm; I have been with my firm for 17 years!  I work all over the country - so it's not weird for me to have an 8pm conference call (LA is one of my favorite offices to work for)!  I love my job almost as much as I love my kids!

When I am not working I am running kids around; you can normally find me multitasking as I work from my car while trying to watch one of the kids are at an activity... think year-round travel baseball, performance cheer, soccer, dance, gymnastics, etc. I also sit on two Nordonia Hills Boards (NHPP and NHAA). I have been in the Nordonia area my whole life. Go Knights!

I love to be busy, which often has me over committing and ultimately leads me to procrastinating (which I am working on)!  NHPP has provided me with opportunities that I would not have either known about or done on my own! Sometimes slowing down and hanging out is just what we all need! NHPP has also allowed me to meet some of my best friends, and that goes for my kids too.

As much as I love my kids, it's nice to get real with some non-judgey parents!  I am always down for a good parent-only social... Dos Coronas anyone?  NHPP is so accepting of everyone and I feel completely comfortable being me with everyone!  Pre-COVID I was also attending many fitness-focused socials as well - cannot wait to start that again this year - so much more fun as a group! 

If you need anything at all or have any questions - I would love to hear from you. Please email me at [email protected] - I will try to respond as soon as possible!
