She works to keep the Military Living® publications that we all know and love up to date, and shares with you the latest information on Military travel.  She is a New Jersey native, an active-duty Navy wife, and a mother of 2 (plus 4 fur-babies).  

 

She graduated from the University of Rhode Island in 2006 and met her husband in Connecticut.  Since then, she has lived all over the east coast, west coast, and Guam, thanks to her Navy husband and his various duty stations.  Her love of history and the military began at a young age, watching WWII documentaries on the History Channel with her father, and hearing war stories from her grandfather, who was stationed aboard the USS Herndon (DD-638).
