I'm an imperfect woman trying to find my place in the world. I'm a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and professional. I am passionate, opinionated, flawed, impatient, loving, funny, sarcastic, inquisitive and I try to be kind. I'm a blue liberal living in red Utah. I love my family. I love my children with a fierce abandon and will protect them like a mother bear. I love books. I love learning. I love watching movies/TV. I love kicking up my heels at the end of the day with a cold Mountain Dew. I also train for half marathons somewhat begrudgingly.

Please note that nothing I say or do reflects upon my employers. My employers have official spokespeople who are not me.

FYI (If You're a Teenage Boy)

Dear boys,

I have some information that might interest you. Last night, as we sometimes do, our family sat around the dining room table and looked through your social media photos. Because we're creepy like that.

We have a teenage daughter, and so naturally, there are quite a few pictures...
