Bringing Nebraska to My Grandkids

My husband, John, and I read the paper online every day. It’s not a perfect method as it adds more screen time for each of us and we actually prefer holding a paper in our hands. Print media is fondly remembered, but the online option was a decision we made and we’ve...

Babies & Toddlers

Hello! I am born and raised in Lincoln, and I never plan to leave. As a small child I knew I wanted to be a mom.  My mom is my best friend, and I wanted that bond with my children. I went to college at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and graduated with a degree in Journalism, but my one passion was motherhood. My husband and I have been married for over 11 years now and we have two children. Cohen, my son, is 10 years old and Collyns, my daughter, is 7 years old. We recently got a dog, Maya, who is now the baby of the family. In addition to the time I devote to being a mom, I also work full-time at a local television station.  It’s a balancing act, but being a mom is one full-time job I never want to quit.

K-12 & Teens

My husband and I have three kids. Our oldest is a sophomore in college, our middle daughter is a sophomore in high school and our youngest is a seventh grader. Like most families, our calendar is color-coded with professional meetings and family and kid activities. In my free time, I like to read, write, exercise and travel.

Grandkids & Grandparents

Where can I even begin to explain the magic that consumed me when I found out I was going to be a grandparent? It didn’t take long, and I was a grandmother of four wonderful kids. With the birth of each one, I was in awe of my emotions and my love for these bundles of joy.
