I live in sunny New Mexico, the land of green chile, blue skies, and hot air balloons. I married my high school sweetheart, and we stay busy chasing 3 little monkeys around our house.

I graduated from the University of New Mexico with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I worked as a pediatric oncology nurse for 7 years before I changed gears to working in the scrapbooking industry. Being a nurse taught me a lot about appreciating the everyday moments in life and celebrating the big and small victories of life. In this way, I feel like my 2 careers have collided.

Whenever I have a few minutes to myself, you will most likely see me curled up with my Nook reading a good book. From Jane Austen to dystopian fiction, I enjoy escaping to other worlds, even if that world has to wait until 2:00 in the morning for me to dive into it. I even love to name my favorite gadgets (Nook, iPhone, iPad, & computer) after my favorite literary characters.

Besides scrapbooking and reading, I love getting pedicures with my sister, eating popcorn while watching movies, collecting school supplies, Burt’s Bees lotion and chapstick, and Lush bath bombs. No day is complete without sharing a laugh with my husband, a hug and kiss from my kids, and indulging in a little chocolate and Dr. Pepper.

I love Project Life and how it has allowed me to capture those everyday moments in our family that would have otherwise been forgotten. I am so happy to be able to work with Becky and the rest of the Project Life team to provide a way for others to document their lives in this simple, meaningful way in digital format.
