I moved to Tempe 8 years ago from paradise (literally, New Zealand) and fell in love with the desert. I’m married to my high school sweetheart and am mama to Ezra and Joelle. Several friends affectionately call me a grandma because of my hobby choices (crocheting, sewing, baking, etc.). For the past 2 years I have led the R/Kids Sunday prep team; coordinating the craft, activity and curriculum supplies used in our classrooms on Sunday.
