Stay-at-homemom of two very energetic children.

Cate, the actress, 6 yrs.



and Connor, the little linguist, 3yrs.


Former accountant, turned teacher. I miss the classroom, but am so happy to be home, holding the fort down while my husband works hard in the CPA biz.

I’m a Wisconsinite transplanted to New Mexico 12 years ago.  I love the 300+ days of sunshine here after living with 7+ months of winter for 26 years of my life.  I spend my time  outdoors – hiking, running, biking and introducing my children to being healthy.  I also enjoy cooking and have been known to collect way more recipes than any one would ever need.

I can’t get enough of running.  The release and escape I get from being active helps me deal with the everyday stresses of life.  I’ve run since middle school, but have gotten serious about training and racing in the last few years since having children.  I’ve run countless 5ks, numerous 10ks, a few half marathons and one marathon.  I’m excited about my children getting older and the idea of run-cations – vacations that involve running a destination race – in our future.  My greatest joy in recent weeks has been watching my daughter take up running like her parents and cross the 5k finish line.
