I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I came to Alaska in 1987 to work for Public Health Service as a nurse in Kotzebue. My husband and I moved to Eagle River in 1993 and we have lived there ever since. I have 3 kids, 13 year old twins, a boy and a girl, and a 10 year old son. We also have two dogs, a cat, and two birds. We love Alaska and enjoy lots of outdoor activities.
