I was born and raised in northern Indiana – “The Region”. After attending Purdue for my undergraduate degree, married and moved out east for several years – living in Connecticut and Maryland. I am now happy to call West Lafayette home once again.

Fun Facts

I met my husband at Purdue; we eloped to Hawaii two weeks after I graduated. We have two children (one who’s a Purdue Alum also). I love dogs, drink TAB (yes, it’s still available), enjoy traveling and games of all sorts. I like Crossword puzzles, Sudoku, Euchre, and board games.
