I am a wife and a mom of four pretty great children. I am an educator by trade. I enjoy learning about plants and their superpowers. We love to travel as a family and have visited most of the United States by car. I have seen the benefits that come from taking control of our own personal finances, and I hope to share that knowledge and enthusiasm with others.

The title of my autobiography would be...

``It's Never a Dull Moment``

My pet is...

Many. Our kitten, joined us one evening, dropped off by a friendly neighbor as a gift for our children. We also have 6 chickens and a rooster. They all have names like KFC and HENrietta. They enjoy (tolerate) being carried around all day by our children and have been gifting us eggs everywhere except their nesting boxes. We do have the rotating collection of insects as well. Currently, there is a 4 inch grasshopper living in our kitchen in a habitat made from recycled package bee boxes.

A unique thing about me is...

My husband and I have lived in 12 homes in the 18 years that we have been married. Each member of our family has his or her own birth state.
