About Me

     As the only daughter in my family, I have been known to be a little bit of a princess.  My own Prince Charming proposed to me at Disney World in 1997.  We went to Disney again to celebrate college graduation, and have been back every year since.  I have always loved the magic that you feel upon entering the Walt Disney World gates.  In fact, our family has the rule that nothing bad can be said and no one can be grouchy while on Disney property! 
    I have a degree in sports broadcasting and was a cheerleader and dancer throughout high school and college.  Most recently, I am a home school mom, soccer mom, robotics team coach, Sunday school teacher, children's taxi driver, runner, Cross Fit athlete wanna-be, passionate animal lover and a terrible cook.

About My Family

As fate would have it, this princess was blessed with two beautiful and rambunctious boys, ages 12 and 9.  They love soccer, baseball, robots, computers, Goofy and Mickey.  They love pin trading and Hidden Mickey searches at Walt Disney World;  we have also participated in the Youth in Education series. Disney World for school?  Can't beat that!
     My husband and I have been married for 14 years.  He works very hard and long hours for a coal company and while we are polar opposites in many ways, we both love to travel and think that Disney always does it right!  We both really enjoy running runDisney races.  Somehow, I always train more than him, but he manages to beat me every time!

About My Disney Experience

   In my town, I am known as the "Crazy Disney Lady"!   It is so much fun for me to help others plan their vacations.  I really try to emphasize that the more you plan before you go, the more you can sit back and enjoy the magic while you are here.   We have been here so many times, yet we always find new ways to enjoy Disney and new adventures to take.
    I have been running for a little over 3 years now and can unequivocally say that Disney races are the best!  Hands down!  Whether you are an elite runner or a fast walker doing it for your health and fun---Disney races are a blast!.  The atmosphere is full of fun and excitement.  There are volunteer cheerleaders and Disney characters all along the course, and you get to run in the most magical place on earth!  RunDisney races are truly for everyone.
    Send me your question so we can plan your perfect runDisney trip!
