I grew up in Southern Illinois and got my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Accountancy from Southern Illinois University. During college, I got married to Nick and starting in 2002, we spent seven years in the St. Louis area where I was an IT Auditor. We moved back to Southern Illinois in 2009, where I worked for SIU until 2015. In December 2015, I had the pleasure of becoming a stay at home Mom to my three kids. We now reside in Carterville.
