I am originally from New Jersey but currently live in Utah. I met my husband while on tour with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and he had a beautiful home in Utah, so there I went! I have three wonderful children ages 19, 18, and 17, all of which have been in the Gifted and Talented program and honors classes at their schools. My younger daughter and I have ADHD and my son and older daughter have ADD, so I am quite familiar with focus deficiencies and hyperactive behaviors! I also own an entertainment company that provides clowns, singing telegrams, DJs, balloon decor and artists, face painters, stilt-walkers, etc. I had originally decided to pursue a BA in Education to add experience to the school assemblies that I perform, but fell in love with teaching and the rest is history.
