I'm a small-town girl living in a big city world. Born and raised in rural Western Maine, I moved to the Los Angeles area in 2000, and now enjoy the best of both worlds. The loves of my life are Lauren, my beautiful daughter, Danny, my handsome man, and Chloe, my 4-legged companion. I love God, my family, nature, reading, music, crafting, good food, technology, and teaching. I'm a history teacher by day, but like to think of myself as a connoisseur of life.
