My Orange County Register column began as a "Diary from the Homefront" series in 2003 when my husband headed to Kuwait for what became OIF 1.
For a decade, my column has covered subjects ranging from the trials of toddlerhood to commissary shopping in Okinawa. Browse my 2013 archive.
As a USNA graduate and former naval officer, a Marine spouse, the daughter of two former naval officers, and the sister of a former Naval Flight Officer and Recon Marine, I'm entrenched in this nomadic lifestyle. I enjoy shedding light on the stories and personalities within the military community, as well as chronicling the adventures of marriage and parenting.
I'm currently working on a young adult novel.
