I am a southside Des Moines native. I graduated from AIB in 1993 and I have been a freelancer, official and captioner. Most recently a year ago I joined Susan Frye Court Reporting after captioning for 16 years, and I love it! I have two boys. My son, Jack, works at Hy-Vee and lives in Des Moines, and my son, Matthew, goes to college in Pensacola, Florida, majoring in marine biology. When I am not working, my husband and I travel, go camping, kayaking, go to concerts, and spend time with family and friends. I also used to be a spin teacher as well as a Body Pump instructor, and fitness and wellness is still a big part of my life, although I no longer teach... for now. I am looking forward to being part of the board and promoting our profession that has been a job I've loved from day one!
