I was born and raised in Utah. I moved to Las Vegas to live with my cousin when I was 19. During that time, I got a job as a Gate Agent with America West Airlines. I met my amazing husband, Derrick, while he was working a flight (as a flight attendant) that I was working (as a gate agent). We didn’t start dating until we ran into each other a couple of years later after I became a Flight Attendant and moved to Phoenix. We dated for 6 years and were married on 12/12/12 (at 12:12pm!)
Our princesses, Magdeline (Maggie) Grace and Annabelle Lee were born on 01/01/2016 at 27w5d. After 59 days in the NICU, we were able to finally bring them home. They are now super sweet, energetic, and very girly 3.5-year olds. They love dressing up in their princess dresses and they love everything sparkly.
Derrick and I have survived two mergers (America West, U.S. Airways and American) and Derrick got a management position in the Flight Attendant Training Department—which brought us to Texas 2 years ago. I am now a DFW based Flight Attendant and I also work in the Training Department as a Flight Attendant Instructor/Evaluator.
As a family, we LOVE Disney and try to get to Disneyland every chance we can. We are due for another trip very soon!
I was so lonely when we first moved to Texas. I knew I needed to find my “people” and I instantly searched out Fort Worth Mothers of Multiples. I joined right away but I wasn’t very involved until I attended the TMOM Convention in Granbury last year. That’s where I really fell in love with Fort Worth Mothers of Multiples and realized what a deeper bond moms of multiples have. I decided to join the board as one of the VPs of Membership because I knew how lonely being a mom of multiples can be and there is nowhere else that could provide better support and friendship than through this tribe. I am very passionate about growing this organization so that we can offer that needed support to all of the MoMs in the Fort Worth area. I have found my best friends in this group. The best friends I have ever had.
I will always be thankful for FWMoM. My advice to you, don’t be afraid to come. Don’t be scared that you won’t know anyone. Just come. I know how hard it is to put yourself out there, but you will be glad you did! I promise!
