All About our Rock and Roll Classic Mom – In Her Own Words:

I am a mama to the sweetest, smartest, quirkiest little guy who is differently abled and handpicked by God for us. I’m a wife to a hero, a fitness fanatic, and a sucker for all things fashion! I am also a helper and a fixer. So a long career in both city as well as federal Law Enforcement suited me perfectly until choosing to make some careers moves. Those allowed me to keep my schedule closer to Waylon’s as we sorted out therapies and schools.

I’m currently working as a realtor for Sea Shore Realty. Furthermore, I am a health and wellness rep for a company that has changed our lives. I could not have success in either field if it weren’t for the amazing people in my life who have trusted me. So I have become a believer that all things are possible as long as you are willing to work for them.
