About Me

Ryan and I were married in 1993 and have three great kids. As a family, we love boating, waterskiing and spending our summers on the water. In the winter, my family can be found in the mountains enjoying down hill skiing. My kids are involved in all kinds of sports and activities and I am the loudest fan in the stands cheering them on!
