Tell us a little about yourself: I was a Golden Girl at MIZZOU and graduated in 1993 with a degree in Fashion Marketing and Merchandising. I’ve lived all over the state of Missouri but moved to KC in 1995. I am a summertime kinda girl, love the lake, gardening and chillin on the patio. Concerts, cooking at home, new restaurants out and just hangin with my favorite people is where you will find me.
Tell us a little about your family: I have 3 amazing kids…Daniel 23 yrs in the Navy stationed in San Diego, Ellie 22 years college student studying Elementary Ed and a Chiefs Cheerleader and Lexie 17 years going to be a senior in high school at Liberty North. Everyone tells you that you will blink and they will be all grown up and I can attest that that’s completely true. I am very proud of all 3 of them and am loving watching them pave their way in life. Proud Mama for sure!
