I'm so honored to be your March mom of the month, friends!
Born and raised in San Antonio, I decided to spend 4 years after high school in Austin to get a new life experience. I loved being a Longhorn (hook em!) and graduated with a BA in Psychology with a minor in Sociology. I moved back home after graduating to finish up my science credits so that I could pursue nursing. I was accepted into the BSN program at UTHSC here in San Antonio in 2007.
It was a very demanding program but I made it through and passed my boards in early 2009. I started my first professional job that year in the same hospital I'm currently employed at (now called Children's Hospital of San Antonio) in a pediatric inpatient unit. I moved down to work in the children's ER a few years ago. It's fast paced and challenging, but I enjoy what I do! They have also been really good to me by letting me work part-time so that I could keep Autumn home with Grandma or daddy on the days that I work!
I met my husband in the summer of 2009 and after a little over a year and a half of dating, he decided he just couldn't let go of such a great catch. We were married in October 2011, and spent the next several years selling our house, buying our current home, and traveling as much as possible. We love visiting new places together and have been to some amazing countries/states/cities in our quest for adventure. We started our scuba diving certification on our honeymoon in Jamaica and have kept it up over the past 6+ years. It's one of our favorite activities to do while traveling.
Our greatest gift came in the form of our almost 2 year old daughter, Autumn Jane, in April 2016. She's so fun and I just love being her mommy. I was so grateful to see the grand opening of Fit4mom Alamo Ranch/Helotes last year because I had been searching for something to meet other moms, get fit, and hopefully help Autumn get some bonding time with other kiddos. It's been a blessing for both of us, and I'm so thankful for all the wonderful women (and kids!) I've met along the way! We love our Fit4mom tribe.
