My life in a nutshell… September 6, 2008

I was born and raised in the central Virginia area with two sisters. I graduated high school in 1997 and without regrets left for Marine Corps boot camp a month after graduation. I spent my first four years in the Air wing at New River Air station. I was a crew chief on a C-12, 7 passenger airplane.  I had a few different jobs the next four years but ended up at Quantico, Va.  I worked in a security vault for Headquarters Marine Corps and this is where I truly felt the impact of our casualties over in Iraq. I made the decision to move on and ended my tour in October of 2006.

After ending my service with the Marine Corps I started a petsitting/dog daycare business in Northern Virginia.  It grew unbelievably fast and I worked very hard but enjoyed every day. A year later, I made a decision to move closer to family and one of my clients at the time took over my business. 

I moved back into the central Virginia area about a year ago. I live with my boyfriend Chuck and my dog Mason.  Chuck and I went to high school together and reunited a couple of years ago when I was visiting back home. He has owned a fine woodworking business for about five years and Mason earns a living by sleeping all day.  Mason is a brindle pit bull and I had the pleasure of rescuing him from a terrible home when he was 10 months old. He has been my baby ever since.


I am a flight attendant based out of Richmond International and my schedule is hectic to put it mildly.  When I am home, I am always busy.  When I have time, I take culinary arts classes through the University of Richmond’s continuing studies program.  I enjoy meal planning, baking, and even grocery shopping. My hobbies also include outdoor activities such as snorkeling, bike riding, swimming and anything that allows the sun to hit my face.

  1. What an interesting life you have had for such a young person. I have always admired women who serve/served in the military. I had considered the Air Force after high school, but my then boyfriend talked me into getting married instead. I was only 20 when I was first married and we divorced 12 years later. Of course, we had two children when we divorced, so I had no regrets. I have often thought how my life would have been different had I gone in the military. So you are a flight attendant. That sounds exciting too. You and I have a lot of the same interests, especially animals and cooking. Living by myself, I don’t get the opportunity to cook much. I love cooking big meals for a lot of people. I can’t wait to cook Thanksgiving dinner. I enjoyed reading your blog.
