I am from a military family—mostly the Navy and Coast Guard, but we have representatives from every branch of service. I have been married for 23 years and have 3 great kids—2 daughters and a son (the baby and my Marine). I also have 5 grandchildren.
I started my journey with Marine Parents in January of 2015 when my son left for boot camp. I initially volunteered as a Platoon Parent and then became the Company Leader for the Mike Company, San Diego group. It has been a wild and rewarding adventure helping others navigate the boot camp roller coaster.
I will be running in the 42nd Marine Corps Marathon this October in honor of my Marine son and my uncle, a retired Marine. I ran my first marathon last year at the MCM. I am a beginning runner and have always wanted to run a marathon. If our troops can serve our country, I can cross something off of my bucket list to honor them.
