I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, IL and have crafted my entire life. I married the love of my life, Bob, in 1990 while I was living in Las Vegas, NV, working as an insurance broker. Bob was active duty USAF and we moved to Honolulu, HI, where I was first introduced to Stampin’ Up! at a home-based party. Just weeks after being introduced to stamping I signed up as a demonstrator in 1998. In 2001 the USAF moved us again, this time to Florida where Bob retired in 2003. We have one daughter, Gina, who is in college studying film production with a minor in ministry.
My love for crafting hasn’t changed and I use Stampin’ Up! products exclusively for scrapbooking, framed art, various 3D projects and of course, cards. You name it, I love to make it! I work my business full time, having earned numerous incentive trips. I earned the achievement of Founders Circle in 2013, 2014 and 2015..
My passion is also shared as the assistant lead for the Ronald McDonald House on Davis Island in Tampa, FL, for which Stampin’ Up! is a global sponsor. Together with volunteers, we hand-stamped cards for the House guests to use during their stay while their child receives critical care. I love being a part of this worthwhile charity, giving back to my community and touching the lives of families that stay in the House.
