Where is home for you? Frederick, MD
What are your recommended “must do’s”? Baker Park, Cunnigham Falls and Downtown Frederick (we agree!)
Meet my family: My awesome husband and four adorable boys ages 9,8,6 and 5. Yes my life is busy!
What are your passions and interests? I’m passionate about speaking at breast cancer events. I like to let women know I was only 38 when I did a self breast exam and found a lump. I have no family history and was not of age for a mammogram. I want to tell as many women as I can that it is very important to do self breast exams. It can save a life.
One major goal you’re striving toward: My husband and I are working on opening our own counseling business. We have a passion for helping the addicts in our area. He is a licensed substance abuse therapist and wants to make a change in Frederick.We hope to open our doors within the next 3 months.
Best advice you’ve received: My grandma use to tell me “Everything in Moderation”. Eat a piece of cake not the whole pie was always her example.
Are you ready for the kids to get back to school? I love the summer but it is always nice to get into a more structured routine again. My youngest child is starting Kindergarten this year so it is a bittersweet time.
A week or two before school I start putting the kids to bed at an earlier time and wake them up early so their body can begin to adjust.
When the kids are away – I will:
- Go on a date night with hubby
- Take an exercise class at the gym
- Go shopping
- Girls night out
- Go for a walk
- Watch Teen Mom and my other DVR non kid shows
- Sit in silence on the couch and do nothing (we hear ya on this!)
