About Me


I wear a lot of hats in life. First, I’m a follower of Christ. I’m a wife, mom, daughter, sister, and friend. I’m also a high school teacher who is taking some time away to be a full time mom to my two boys. I have a PhD in education leadership and policy, but I won’t make you call me “Dr.” (unless you want to! I certainly won’t stop you). 

My education background is in political science and history, but even I have grown weary of politics. I won’t address politics in this blog. You’re welcome.

I’m a voracious reader. I love to travel. I have lived in 2 states. I love Mexican food. I can’t stand seafood. I love pink. I love it when it rains. I have been to the Oval Office. I can’t stand being cold. I hardly need any sleep. I have really small feet, and I think that’s why I’m so clumsy. I have a very loud laugh. I love oldies music. I have a Golden Doodle who loves to sleep on my feet as I read.

Chocolate is my love language.

***I read books from every genre. Some have themes with which I don’t always agree. Some subject matters are personally troublesome. I will provide an objective summary, but my ratings are subjective and are likely influenced by my personal feelings about the content. I don’t always support or condone everything presented in the books I review. Please see “Trigger warnings” that I provide as guidance.***
