I am a native of Noblesville, Indiana where I was born in 1968, but I spent my childhood in the small town of Shoals. My current residence is Linton, Indiana. I come from a supportive loving home, and as the youngest of six children, probably enjoyed being the "baby" a little more than I should.
At the age of five, I was diagnosed with Nephrotic syndrome (a kidney disease), and I battled this condition for many years. Most of my treatments and long hospital stays were at Riley Children's Hospital. By the age of twelve, I had outgrown the childhood disease. I missed a lot of school during my illness, but it didn't effect my grades. I was an outstanding student, and in the first grade, I passed after only twenty-nine days of actual classroom attendance. I believe this illness has helped shape who I am today. I'm strong willed and look forward to adventures eagerly.
When I decide to do something new, I push myself to learn. I have many interests to keep me busy. I'm a photographer, a rock carver, a fine arts artist, a digital art designer, an author, and, most importantly, I am a proud mom.
I have a sense of humor and like to play pranks whenever possible. I also love the outdoors... fishing, hiking, boating, camping, and mushroom hunting. Actually, mushroom hunting is more of an obsession.
