I was born and raised in Illinois, I moved to Knoxville, TN with my new husband in 1993. I have been married to the love of my life for 29 years and we have raised 5 sons, and now have grandchildren to spoil. In my free time I love to travel with my husband and I am an avid reader. I always have a book I am reading and never leave home without my reader. I love to garden both indoors and out. I always knew I wanted to work in health care as my mom who raised me was a CNA at nights to support all 8 of us kids.
