I live in Southern California with my angelic husband, our three children (we're working on the angelic part), two dogs (they take after my husband), and personal library of over one thousand children's books. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Sociology, as well as, an Elementary Teaching Credential.
Whether it be writing children's books, cooking new recipes, developing marketing material for the family business, creating art projects with my kiddos, or throwing epic birthday parties, my absolute favorite thing to do is drum up my imagination! All this would be nearly impossible without Yogi tea and the occasional mojito.
