Thank you for checking out my blog, where you will see snippets of my life, my amazing clients, and from time-to-time, my crazy dogs, Samson and Rico!

My husband, Craig, and I love raising our son, Todd, in beautiful Idaho, but you can often find us traveling all over the west coast to visit family and attend football camps.

Much love!
