My husband and I met June 1994 and both graduated from Malvern High School. We married June 2000. We have two children, Peyton and Kate, two dogs Daisy and Rexie,one cat Sugar, and one miniature pig Charlotte Penelope. My son Peyton is in 8th grade and my daughter Kate is in 5th grade. We are all proud to be Malvern Leopards!
I love to run, swim, and bike for fun! I have participated in several 5Ks, 10Ks, Half-Marathons, Full Marathons, and Super Sprint Triathlons! I qualified as a "Marathon Maniac" for running 3 marathons in 90 days and a “Half Fanatic" for running 3 half-marathons in 90 days, which qualified me as a "Double Agent.” I have done one Ultra-Marathon at White Rock 50K (31.1 miles)! My biggest accomplishment was completing the “Triple Threat” at Hotter ‘N Hell in Wichita Falls, Texas. That consisted of mountain biking 13.1 miles, road biking 100 miles, and running a half-marathon in 3 days.
We enjoy doing anything outside with our two kids, whether it's riding bikes, hiking, or swimming. We love to go camping! We camp at the lake every summer for 2 weeks with some of our family and friends. We like to go out in the boat, ride the tubes, go fishing, ride the jet skis, kayaking, ride our bikes, and hike to waterfalls. We also camp at deer camp in the fall and ride our 4-wheelers and side-by-side. We recently built a house in the country. We enjoy fishing in our pond, playing with our dogs and pig, feeding and watering the cows and chickens, and visiting family who live nearby.
