I am a mother of 3 amazing girls, happily married for 28 years and I have a passion for living life to the fullest each and every day. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and I currently live in Colorado. I love spending quality time with my family camping and traveling. I enjoy dance, Zumba, running, movie nights, and entertaining company.
With all that said, how life can be so unpredictable. Our story... November 25th 2008 my daughter Erica was riding her bike home from school on the last day before the Thanksgiving break when she was struck head on by a distracted driver just around the corner from our home. Erica died 2 days later from a severe brain injury from this 100% preventable car crash. Losing my daughter was a starting point for my advocacy and outreach to educate drivers about this deadly addiction of cell phone use and driving. In 2009 I joined other victim advocates and became a founding board member that launched a non-profit organization called Focus Driven Advocates for Cell Free Driving. After four years with Focus Driven, I became an independent safety consultant.
