Twins? Africa? Marathons? Why not?! Bring on the adventure (but don't forget the coffee).

Fun Facts

  • My most impressive parenting skill:

    Letting my teenagers fly internationally on their own and (almost) not worrying about them.

  • Three things I can’t live without:

    My faith, my family, and a really good book. And coffee. I can live without math.

  • The amount of coffee I drink in a day:

    One super-sized cup made from home roasted Ethiopian beans, black.
