Family Information

My husband, Hank and I have been married for 24 years.

We share 3 children, Crystal, Shelby and Dalton

We are members of Brightside Church in Caledonia, Michigan.

We currently live in the Alger Heights area and love the togetherness of the neighbors. Most of the houses were built in the 1950's and have unique character which I love. My dream house is a cabin in the woods, however I'm afraid that I will miss the hustle and bustle of the city. Maybe someday I will have both.

As a family we love to visit Lake Michigan at all times of the year, however my favorite time is during the summer months.

We love biking the White Pine Trail. This trail extends from Riverside Park in Grand Rapids and currently you can ride all the way to Cadillac, Michigan. Usually we will ride to the City of Rockford for lunch and watch the activity on the river.

We really enjoy our family time traveling to different places around the U.S. Usually spring break week finds us lounging the beach of Anna Maria Island in Florida. Besides Florida, my most memorable trips have been to San Francisco, East Coast states and of course all over Michigan. My family roots are in Petoskey where my grandparents had a nice size farm with cattle and Arabian horses.

I love to read, bowl,decorate and I especially love electronics.
I also enjoy social networking so look me up on Facebook and Linked In.
