Patriotic, hard-working, food lover, proud mama and Peloton addict...
I quit my corporate career in HR to be able to work from home and have more flexibility for my family, when my Army husband deployed in 2008. Fast forward to 2019, I am back to a "real-working world" career - but with the ability to work remotely.
Keeping our heads above water while trying to raise a family, all while putting in a days work, and the travel that comes with my career... working and raising a family is not for the faint of heart.
My Professional Stuff...
As a freelance writer and consultant, I have experience in technical writing, social branding, and professional translating in Spanish/English. I have worked with some incredible brands such as;
A&E, GM, Carnival Cruise Lines and Ebates.
I am the Director of the Military Saves program for the Consumer Federation of America. I am passionate about military families saving for tomorrow. I have also been running the military family support blog, Homefront United Network since 2010.
In 2013 I was honored to be named the New Jersey National Guard Spouse of the Year by Military Spouse Magazine and Armed Forces Insurance.
I have been a Board of Education Member since winning my seat in January of 2017, and in 2019, I was nominated for the seat of Vice President. I am an advocate for military kids attending civilian schools as well as current issues affecting curriculum and smaller school districts. I also sat on the Advisory Board for the Military Family Advisory Network from 2017-2019.
I have my Bachelor's in Business Administration and my Master's in Human Resources.
I live happily ever after in my home state of New Jersey with my husband, two kids, one greyhound and two ferrets.
