I’ve been in Louisville and part of the Mirazon team since June 2012. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a focus in Leadership Studies from Western Kentucky University, and a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Kentucky. I get to indulge in some teaching on occasion at Mirazon, and the Information Science piece has definitely served me well. I’ve learned a lot working in IT over the past several years and enjoy the challenge of the ever-changing field.

I have a beautiful eleven-year old daughter named Audrey Grace who is easily the most amazing part of my life. She is, to no exaggeration, a mini-me, and we have created tons of lasting memories during our time in Louisville. My favorite interest and passion that we share is music. We’ve been to several concerts and festivals, and each one has been a unique and unforgettable experience. The rest of our free time we spend outdoors, crafting, or reading. We recently finished the Harry Potter series and are excited to see where our next reading adventure takes us.

My time at Mirazon has been such a blessing. My co-workers have exceeded their reputation, and I’m glad to call them family. I am so very fortunate to have such a great team to work with and a visionary company to stand behind.
