I am a proud wife of a Marine and mother of a Marine. My husband, Jose, served from 1999-2002 as an infantryman and a part of FAST company. Our son, Caleb, graduated from MCRD San Diego in October 2015. He is the oldest of 4 children, and has a mindset just like dad. They both make me proud every single day to be a part of their world.
I work as a legal secretary for a prosecutorís office, while my husband is a Sergeant with our local police department. I thoroughly enjoy my job and having the opportunity to see the outcome of many cases my husband is a part of.
I am also a volunteer with Marine Parents since August of 2015. I volunteered as a platoon parent with Lima Company when my son was in boot camp and currently I am the Company Leader for Kilo Company San Diego. It has been a blessing to give back to so many people and help them through the journey that I once traveled myself.
I had never been a runner, in fact I always believed my body was against any sort of running at all. My husband and I started running together while our son was at boot camp. Running for us became something we enjoyed that could be a common activity. We recently completed our first half marathon together this past January in Disneyland. This yearís Marine Corps Marathon will be our first marathon together and an incredible honor to be a part of the Marine Parents Team.
