Who am I and Where Do I Come From?

For starters... I am geographically challenged.  I was born and raised in Cathedral City, California.  My mother is a CA native, while my father is from Boston, Massachusetts.  Needless to say... I AM AN AVID RED SOX FAN(ATIC)!  In addition to this, I attended and graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 2003.  GO ARMY (beat Navy)!  After my time at West Point, I honorably served in the United States Army as an Officer from 2003 - 2008, where one of those years was spent "down-range" in Baghdad, Iraq (2005-2006).  While serving, I met my husband, Jason, and we have three beautiful daughters (from toddler to pre-teen).  I am also a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu enthusiast, and when I am not spending time with my family or serving the community, I am training for the next competition and going for gold.  

What makes me tick?

In short... gratitude.  I am extremely grateful to have had the experiences that I've had.  Not only because of the experience itself, but because of the people I have met along the way.  I am both humbled and honored to have served alongside some truly exceptional and brave men and women. They have inspired me, motivated me, and encouraged me to pursue excellence in every endeavor I pursue.

As a tribute to the Servicemen and Women I've known, I will donate a minimum of 10% of every commission I earn. Proceeds will be designated for the Wounded Warrior Project and Team Red, White, and Blue.  These organizations raise awareness concerning those who sustained combat-related injuries, and are committed to the restoration, transition and reintegration of every Veteran through physical activity, economic empowerment and community involvement.
