Wife

Matthew and I were married on June 28, 2003 in Laguna Beach, California. Soon after, we bought a house in Fullerton, Matthew's hometown. I am so thankful for his commitment to being a supportive husband and father. He often contributes more than his fair share to running our household. Together, we enjoy raising our boys, going to car shows, camping, and playing at the beach.

Mom of Zachary and Evan

Zachary and Evan are the loves of our life! Zachary likes video games and swimming. Evan is into all things superhero. Together, they make life fun and loud! Our house is filled with Nerf guns and Legos! Both sets of grandparents live nearby and have close relationships with the boys. It is a joy to be the principal of their school. I love to see them learning in their classrooms and playing on the yard.
