I am a proud daughter and mother of Marines. My dad served from 1965-1969 in Vietnam and was very proud of his service. Since my son, Will, was just like his Papa, he followed in his footsteps and in August 2014 he entered the DEP right before my dad passed away from complications from Agent Orange! My son graduated High School June 2015 and left 3 weeks later for MCRD SD. He graduated MCRD SD in October 2015.
I am married to my best friend, David, and we have 4 wonderful children. Will is my oldest and my Marine and then I have a DD 17, DS 15 and DD 10. I work for the local school district as a Para-Educator, in the special Needs department. I love my job as I get to help the children learn to do things on their own and I just love to see their faces when they accomplish what they started!
I have also volunteered with Marine Parents since August 2015 as a Platoon Parent in Fox Co while my son was in boot camp. I am currently the Group Leader of 3rd Bn India Co SD, where I enjoy helping parents and family members navigate the Boot Camp Roller Coaster!
I am excited to be running the MCM10K this year for TMP. I started running back in 2009, however had to stop when I tore my achilles tendon and just started back up again with the wonderful words of some of my VO friends.
