Since this is my web site, I guess that means a little info about me is in order. I was born on July 24, 1972 (which makes me a Leo, just in case you were wondering). I grew up in St. Joseph, Michigan (USA), a quaint little town on the coast of Lake Michigan. I went to Trinity Lutheran School for K-8th (class of '86) and I spent 9th-12th (class of '90 - go Bears!) at St. Joseph Senior High, except for the semester I spent at Portage Nothern High School my sophomore year.
Immediately after high school I started at Lake Michigan College (the local community college) where I met my husband, Phillip. I dropped out of LMC in the summer of 1992 and started at St. Joseph Beauty College. I got my cosmetology license in the summer of 1993 shortly after I moved to West Lafayette, Indiana with Phillip so he could attend Purdue University. I worked retail until I got my license transferred to Indiana and then I started doing hair.
Our first son, Alexander, was born on Sunday, October 16, 1994, at 7:45 a.m. Phillip and I got married on Friday, August 9, 1996; Alex was our Ring Bearer. That fall we moved into Married Student Housing . In the spring of 1997 I was accredited as a La Leche League Leader. Our second son, Joshua, was born on Tuesday, December 30, 1997, at 9:08 p.m. In 1999 Phillip graduated from Purdue and took a job with SPX here in Owatonna, Minnesota. Our daughter, Caitlin, was born on her due date of Thursday, November 8, 2001, at 11:49 p.m.
I enjoy music, reading, web page design, sewing, crafts, baking, gardening and being a mother.
