Bio: I live just a block north of Benton Park Park and work in North Country teaching in the Riverview Gardens district for Special School District. Autism is my passion! I am often involved in some sort of fundraising effort for the world of special education.

I have two dogs in our semi-family with my boyfriend, both pitbulls and a mix. Their names are Samantha Jones and Avery. I have been working diligently for the last two years to fundraise for the dog park and make the lives of all pups better!! The dog park started as a passion project for my pup Ted who has since crossed the rainbow bridge, but I'm tirelessly working to keep my promise to him, #Teddytwopaws I am an obsessive dog mom and I genuinely enjoy making Benton Park the best neighborhood in south city.

When I'm not dog park promoting or hanging out with my dogs I'm enjoying a delicious craft beer or cocktail, (whoop! whoop! for Harrison @ Small Change) or crafting something, or looking for a new dinner recipe. Sometimes I'm simultaneously doing all three all three!
