I grew up in a small town in Georgia. Shortly after graduating from college, I married my high school sweetheart. Two months later, my husband received his Army commission and our military adventures began! In addition to living in Georgia, the Army has sent us to Ft Sill, Oklahoma and Baumholder, Germany. I am currently living back in Georgia with our baby girl and dog, while my husband is on his second deployment.
I have previously worked as a Department of the Army civilian employee but now enjoy staying home with my daughter. I am passionate about sports and fitness and am grateful to have had the opportunity to become certified as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. I am excited about this career path since it will allow me to help others and also have the flexibility to spend plenty of time with my family. We all know too well how precious that time is!
The military life is sometimes very hard but overall we enjoy it. I am so proud of my husband and his fellow service members. I feel blessed to be able to call myself a military wife!
I was born and raised in South Georgia, lived there all 20 years until my life took a sudden and unexpected turn towards marriage. After just three months of dating my best friend from high school, I moved to California and married him. I am the first member of my family to be involved with the military. The short time I have been a Navy wife I have come to appreciate my independence and my faith more than ever. I spend my newly-found free time reading Marry Higgins Clark books and surfing the net, chatting with fellow military spouses. I am a budding, but not very astute, chef. I am really enjoying this new life I have been blessed with and look forward to facing and overcoming the challenges it will bring with it

I am a young military spouse and have been associated with the Navy for about five years, three of which has been as a spouse. I’ve gone through several underways that lasted anywhere between a week to three months and a six month deployment. I’ve only been connected to one boat, a fast attack, but am getting ready to go to another within the next year. We are expecting our first child, a boy, this September so we are in for the adventure of a lifetime! I am currently working towards my college degree of speech pathology and hope to eventually earn a doctorates degree. I enjoy playing tennis, reading, writing and scrapbooking (even though I’m really not very good).
I’ve been married for five and a half years to a wonderful man who happens to be an amazing Marine. We live a little bit of a unique lifestyle compared to the rest of the corps. We’ve weathered some of the more typical types of long deployments but because he’s a flyer we deal with constant comings and goings and a schedule that is at the mercy of the Marine Corps. We are blessed with two very active, very rough and tumble little boys, Dash-1 who is three and Dash-2 who is 16 mths.
