I have one baby boy who just turned one year old in October and two stepdaughters who just turned six and about to turn nine. I also have a 15 year old cat that I’ve had since he was nine weeks old. I LOVE hanging out with the kids and my family and cuddling with my cat. I’ve been with Bowman & Company since October 2015 and learn new things every day. When I’m home I like watching sitcoms like Big Bang Theory and Ridiculousness, dramas like NCIS, learning shows like How It’s Made, and movies.
