I am passionate about the communities I serve, personally and professionally. I am honored to work with members of the Foster/Adopt community, Home Educators, Lee’s Summit School District, and the Performing Arts community.

I am happily married to my wonderful husband, Mike, and we have three children- a teenage son that graduated from Lee’s Summit West High School and now attends Longview Community College, a thirteen year old daughter that is home educated, and an infant daughter that joined our family through the miracle of adoption. We are also foster parents, and have parented many children from newborn through teen. Our family is actively involved in serving God through our local church and volunteering with several local missions.
