Nathan and I met in the autumn of 2005 at Brigham Young University, and were married in May 2006 in the Denver LDS Temple. We have an active dog named Lady, Nathan works for a physician consulting firm, and I'm a licensed practical nurse, know a few things about exercise, and am a full time mommy. July 2009 brought our first baby, James, into the family. Jackman was born exactly two years later in July 2011 and shares a birthday with his brother. Life is good!
