Troy and I met at church in a Young Adult Ward in San Jose. We began dating and very quickly became unseperable!!! We were married 10 months later in the Oakland temple on Dec. 27, 1997. We live in Tracy, CA, we love it here and feel like this is home. We have 4 beautiful, amazing children that bring us so much joy: Jacob (10), Nicole (8), Allie (5), and Zackary (2). I have come to truly know and understand that I have the most important and best job ever. I love being a mom and feel very blessed that I am able to be home with my chidren. Things get chaotic and stressful, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I love the gospel, I love my family and I love my friends. These are the things that bring me the most joy in life and are what I am most thankful for.
