Accomplishments
My wonderful husband Mark and beautiful daughter Daphne.  My career has given me great satisfaction.  I worked while completing my education, obtaining my MBA later, after being married and starting a family.

Off the Clock
Spending time in Colorado with my daughter and enjoying the mountains is top on my list.  I come from a large family, so spending time with all of them ranks very high on my priorities.  Otherwise, I enjoy movies, country music – Rascall Flatts is my favorite – and finding the time to relax.

Accomplishments:
By far, my greatest accomplishments have been my marriage of 8 years to my best friend and wife, Ereka, and raising our three amazing sons, Madden, Grayson and Bowen.  Following would be graduating with honors (Cum Laude) from Upper Iowa University in 2011 with a BASc degree, majoring in Accounting, and advancing my career over the years which was made possible only by the grace of God and a few people He has placed in my life who have given me mentorship and opportunities to which I am eternally grateful.

Off the Clock:
My middle son, Grayson, is autistic so a lot of my wife and I’s free time is spent learning about what Grayson’s world looks like through his eyes and researching new ways to help him and other children with Autism learn, grow, and assimilate in the world the rest of us see.  Grayson has blessed us with a perspective on life that many of us forget about as we grow older and he continues to challenge us for the better each and every day.  When I do have free time, I enjoy vacationing with my family, hunting, fishing, woodworking, golfing, gardening, and spending time around my koi pond.

Accomplishments:
After moving around the world, and starting from scratch three times, we settled in Rockford, Ill. 19 years ago.  I consider my biggest accomplishment thus far to be finishing my degree.  English being my second language, I faced unique battles in accomplishing my goals, yet I was able to obtain my degree while working a full-time job and taking care of my family.

Off the Clock:
During my time “off-the-clock,” I love spending time with my family.  It is getting a little harder to do since my oldest daughter is in medical school in Sydney, Australia, and my youngest daughter is finishing up her undergraduate degree at Iowa State University.  As a result, my husband  and I decided to pick up a hobby and have recently started playing golf.  We’ll see how it goes.

Off the Clock:
In my off time, I do a lot of babysitting for my grandchildren. We love camping, grilling out and good movies.  But, nothing beats my two hours on Sunday nights I get to spend with a good read.
