In 1997, I moved to Atlanta, GA, where I met my husband, Brad Wharton. We were married in June of 2000. This is the second marriage for each of us; combined we have three beautiful daughters, Jordan, Kristina, and Julie. (17, 16, 15 - my oldest is graduating in 2008!) Our home is in Kennesaw, GA, which is about 30 miles northwest of Atlanta.

Currently I'm an Underwriting Service Specialist for a company that underwrites business insurance. However, I will graduate from Atlanta School of Massage in October 2007. After taking the National Board Certification exam, I will be a certified and licensed therapeutic massage therapist. It's a blessing to help in the healing of others, and I'm thankful to have the opportunity to go back to school and figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I truly love it.

I spend most of my spare time with Brad and the girls, doing anything from swimming in the pool to playing board games to watching movies. I get my stress relief by working out either at the gym or just taking long walks in our neighborhood. At least once a year we try to head up to Smethport and visit my parents and all the siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews. (I'm the only one who strayed away!) My husband is an only child, as was his daughter Kristina before she inherited two sisters, so my HUGE family is a new and wonderful experience for both of them! My mother-in-law lives in St. Augustine, FL, so that makes for another nice place to visit annually as well. :o) Life is good!
