13235252_10153680565943099_444705330555697021_oI live in Kentucky with my husband, Jason, and our four dogs (Lois Lane, Buddy, L.B., and Eclaire) and lots of backyard critters.

I am a six-year breast cancer survivor, a hobby photographer, a nature lover, and an all around gadget geek. I have lots of interests and hobbies, some of which include sewing & quiltingreadingcamping, kayakinggamingphotographycrafting & DIY, roaming around the Interwebs, and hanging out with family and friends.

I graduated from the University of Louisville in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems. I co-own Webfoo, Inc, a web-based IT company, with Jason where we enjoy commuting to our home office each morning for work. We also publish a pet blog at All Our Paws where we post information on how to care for various animals. If you’re an animal lover, check it out!

Jason and I got married in June of 2000 after dating for 6 years. In December of 2004 I legally adopted my step-daughter, Portia. My first grandchild, Laila Naome, was born on August 10, 2013.
