A Little Bit About Our Family

2A7A5840 (1)

I am married to Joel, a pretty amazing husband and father. We have been married over 20 years.

We have two children. Jamie is our oldest and he has cerebral palsy and is on the autism spectrum. He is nonverbal. Riley is our youngest. She is in high school and is in love with theater.

Abby is our Jack Russell/Dachshund mix pound puppy who is in her teens. Our standard poodle, Beauregard, is cute enough to get away with being on the furniture.
