I am a bilingual (Spanish/English) woman born and raised in the U.S.
I love to see new places and taste new foods. I love the mountains, ocean, city and everything in between, but if I had to choose a favorite it would be beach-side living. For those that know me well, they know I love all things that have to do with Hawaii & Disney! I love the sun with cool breezes, but I also love thunderstorms, especially at night! I digitally scrapbook as a hobby, but I make a living as a Spanish teacher. I have an awesome husband, Bill, of 20+ years and two smart teenage boys. If I had to say one unique thing about me it would be that I was literally held as a baby by a famous western actor that has since passed on – Mr. John Wayne. This was in California where I was born. I also love to sing and made my city’s top 10 version of “American Idol” back in 2009.
I am grateful for the many blessings in my life given by my savior Jesus Christ and I couldn’t ask for anything better.
Bill is an avid reader of mostly historical fiction, loves all things that have to do with Sci-Fi and has been watching Star Trek since forever. We have been to quite a few comic-con/sci-fi conventions. He works hard to provide for our family as an IT Supervisor at a large financial firm so of course, he is a wiz on computers! He is also great at do-it-yourself projects around the home. On his downtime, you will most likely find him drinking either diet sweet tea or Coke/Pepsi Zero on the computer at home or watching a movie.
Christopher is a teen that absolutely LOVES everything that has to do with new and upcoming technology. He gets that from his dad! He is the one I call to for computer help if my husband isn’t available. He is into playing video games and is super talented on the drums! He plays the drums for our church’s youth group and we’re so proud of his accomplishments. His best subjects in school are History and Math. In fact, he was indicted into the Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society just last year! We are getting ready for him to start college soon. Oh how time flies!
Jacob is the extrovert in our family! He loves, and is very good at, performing for the school plays. He loves to make people laugh ever since he was very young. He likes to play video games, watch TV, play flag football, and is only one color away from becoming a black belt in Karate! We’re proud of how long and hard he has worked with Karate. His favorite football team is the N.Y. Jets and soon he will be able to see them live, which he is pumped about. His best subject in school is English because he is great at reading comprehension. In a few years, we too will be getting ready for him to enter college!
Athena is our sweet, but scary if she doesn’t know you, German Shepherd. She is currently 3 years old. She is our fourth dog we’ve ever had. Our first dog passed away of cancer, our second dog we had to give away, our third dog passed away and we still don’t know of what, and now we have Athena. All three of our previous dogs were Golden Retrievers, so Athena is our first German Shepherd. She is playful, a big baby, but also has a big bark. She loves to play ball, run around the yard with rocks in her mouth, and eat anything that falls on the floor. Her favorite food is deli salami, deli bologna, bacon, chicken or…any meat really. She is part of our family so that’s why we included her!
