My Photo


I grew up in Kansas, went to Iowa for school, and met Iowa-boy Jonathan while we were freshmen at Drake. After getting married in '95 we lived in Iowa for awhile, then moved to Wisconsin and lived there 7 years (that's where I got my library degree. Go Badgers!). We moved to Michigan in the summer of 2004 and had 2 kiddos. In 2013 we moved back towards home, landing in the western suburbs of Chicago.

Jon and I have a busy tween daughter and a mischievous teenage son. We live with a lot of books, a noisy husky hound, and a cat who never stops purring.
