Areas Of Interest

Maintaining good gut health. The GI tract plays an important role in our health so it is extremely important to have a healthy GI system.

I have lived in the area my whole life. I have been married for 25 years to my husband, Matt. We have four boys and six grandchildren. I love to spend days doing just about anything with the family. I enjoy being outdoors and meeting friends for a day of lunch and shopping. For me, it's all about making memories with family and friends.
