I was born and raised in the plains of Kansas. After high school, I moved to Omaha, Nebraska where I graduated from Grace University with a Bachelors in Bible and Elementary Education and an endorsement in ESL. A couple of months later, I moved to China and taught ESL at an International school for three years. It was during this time that I became a member of Faithwriters. In 2010, I moved back to the U.S. and taught for one year on the Navajo Reservation. At the end of that year, I moved to Albuquerque where I met and married my husband. I now have beautiful baby girl and work part-time as a writer and a tutor.
