First, tell us a little bit about yourself.    
I am a mom of two and have been and Air Force wife for 22 years.  I taught special ed preschool for 8 years and then have been a stay at home mom.  I am very active as a spouse on base.  I began sewing when I was about 9 years old in 4 H. I sew, quilt, paint signs for fun;)


Describe your typical work day.
I sew in the early mornings Monday through Friday:) I work on the liners like an assembly line.

Why did you join R.Riveter?
I wanted to belong to a group of military spouses who shared the love of sewing that I did.
How has being a military spouse affected your journey and your career?
We have moved every 2 to 3 years since 1996.  It became hard to be a teacher in so many different states and I wanted to be home with my babies.
How has R.Riveter affected your life?
It has given me a bit of purpose for my favorite hobby: sewing.
What do you love most about what you do?
I love being able to work at my own pace:)
What is one of your most proud moments at R.Riveter?
Purchasing a purse with a liner I made!
