Meet the Team: Welcome


Raised as an Army brat with a mother from Nuremberg, Germany, I have been instilled with an innate sense of discipline, adventure, and the capacity to adapt to new situations and cultures. Today, I'm a Retired Army wife with 23 years of marriage under my belt, the mother of four incredible daughters, and a proud grandmother to three and a half grandchildren (1 boy, 2 girls, and another girl on the way!).

For a decade, I ran my own Family Child Care (FCC) through the military, a venture that allowed me to utilize my deep-rooted nurturing nature and commitment to service. My journey in education led me to earn a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a focus on Warehouse Logistics in 2016, graduating Cum Laude.

My fascination for new cultures and love for travel inspired me to launch my own business, Superbly Justifiable Travel Services, in 2022. Recognizing the potential and demand, I transitioned the business to an LLC in 2023, combining my logistical know-how with my passion for exploration.

The transient military lifestyle has afforded me a wealth of experiences in areas such as customer service, inventory control, VA caregiving, and office coordination. Being fluent in German and currently learning Spanish, I have been able to connect with a diverse range of individuals and cultures. When I'm not tending my vegetable garden or delving into learning about new global locations, I invest my time in the empowerment of young women.

One of my proudest accomplishments is being a part of the movement that is GirlsUnited. I'm both honored and excited to be a #gamechanger in this initiative, leveraging my experience to help young women communicate better and appreciate their intrinsic worth. My passion for nurturing growth, whether in a garden, a business, or a young person's life, is the cornerstone of my journey.
