Why I came to the Hoisington/Central Kansas area
• We have always loved this area as my and my husband’s families are from Central Kansas.  We both grew up close to the area.

What I enjoy most about this area
• I enjoy how friendly everyone is and the small town sense of pride. We love getting to know our neighbors and others in the community.

About my family
• I’m married to Jacob and we have 4 young boys at home. We have many different animals that keep us busy.

• We enjoy outdoor activities. My kids are in different sports and we like attending those events and staying involved with community and school events.

Most rewarding part about being a provider
• The best part of being a provider is working alongside families to ensure children grow up healthy and happy. I enjoy being part of the good times and an advocate during the hard times.
