My Family

Mother- My mom's name is Penny. She works at TG Missouri as a machine technician. She is always really supportive of me and has pushed me to work hard. I never would have been successful without her support.

Father- My dad, Joe, works for the Missouri Department of Transportation as a Int. GEO Tech Specialist. I can always count on him to give me his honest opinion and tell me what he thinks I should do. I don't always agree, but I always listen whether he realizes it or not.

Stepmother- My Stepmom, Linda, married my dad several years ago. We didn't always get along, but now she truly is my second mom. We share a lot of common interests, with jewelry, figurines, and Jeff Gordon being our favorites!

Stepfather- My stepdad's name is B.R. I live with him and my mom most of the time. We are both big Cardinal fans, so we spend a lot of time together in front of the television rooting for the Cards.  He was also responsible for one of the greatest weeks of my life...a week in Florida watching the Cardinals in Spring Training.

Stepbrother- My stepbrother's name is Sam.  He is only about four months older than me so we have a lot in common.  We spend most of our time together watching movies and discussing our hectic lives.

Stepsister- Roxanne, my stepsister, works as a manager at Sam's Club.  She has an adorable son named Connor, who is the center of attention in the family.  She is a lot of fun and always understands the point I'm trying to make.

My Friends

My best friend in the whole wide world is Mary Beth.  We rarely, if ever, go more than a couple hours without talking., whether it be on the phone, on the internet, or in person.  I'd be lost in the world without her!

However, I have lots of friends other than Mary.  Here they no particular order!

My Future Plans

After high school, I plan to attend the University of Missouri at Columbia.  At Mizzou, I will major in journalism.  After college I hope to get a job as sports journalist, preferably covering either Major League Baseball or collegiate basketball.  My dream job would be to work for ESPN as a Sportscenter anchor.  I would also like to someday write a novel as well as a biography of famous athlete.

My future plans for my personal life includes getting married and building a strong household.  At this time in my life I have no interest in children.  I honestly don't believe I would make a very understanding and/or supportive parent.  I am too much of a perfectionist!
