Family/children: I am married to my best friend. We have four children. Three girls and one boy. We also have a puppy.
Career: I worked as a Veterinary Nurse for fourteen years. I started at 17 straight from school.? However, due to the deterioration of my eyes, I was advised to finish. I?m now a full time mommy. I love it as I never miss any of the children?s activities. However, I loved my job and miss it dearly.
Hobbies: Having four children, I don?t really have time for hobbies myself. I do have a love of animals, and going to zoos and farms with the children is always fun.
I love music and play a few different instruments. Also, over the last few years I?ve developed a little obsession with make up. I think with three daughters, this is something that?ll come in handy. Although as my eyes get worse applying it get more difficult.
Name three words to describe you: Caring, passionate and chatty.
What are you surprisingly good at: Loving my family. It?s the easiest thing in the world.
Who is someone you admire and why? This is a hard question. I couldn?t actually pinpoint one person. However, I admire all those out there that have disabilities and daily challenges in their lives, but still get up each morning with a smile on their face and tackle the day ahead with all that they have.
What are you happiest doing? ?Being with my family.
What would be your personal motto: ?Live for today. Tomorrow is never guaranteed. Don?t live your life with regrets. Go out there and be happy.
