I am a second time biological mom and second time stepmom. I live in Vancouver, Washington with my loving husband, toddler son, baby girl, stepson and stepdaughter, both under 11. This is my second marriage. In my first marriage, I was lucky enough to have two other precious stepchildren, who are now 18 and 23, and I miss them every day. I have been very fortunate to have two amazing step families, with wonderful support systems.
I grew up in the Beaverton, Oregon area and am a third generation University of Oregon graduate. I am an avid University of Oregon Duck football fan. Some of my favorite things, which are probably more obsessions, are traveling, storage containers, NCIS, heels, Pinterest and sleeping.
I have an older sister, who has been very successful in her career and has a beautiful family. My parents still live in the Portland metro area, and are a large part of my life.
For approximately 16 years I have been in the banking field, with an emphasis in Bank Management. So, now I am going from working 60 hours a week in a conservative business atmosphere as a bank VP to 24/7 domestic goddess (I prefer that to stay-at-home mom, for some reason). This is my journey. This is my adventure. I am both anxious and excited on what is before me. Let’s see if I can survive going from VP to Mommy. Wish me luck!!
