I love the outdoors, and being able to spend time with my family. I have an amazing husband who works hard for us so I can stay home with our two beautiful, happy girls and a 3rd bundle of joy on his/her way! I love to be crafty and paint during my down times, especially in the Fall and Winter when I’m not enjoying the sun outside with my family and friends. At Imagine Camping I’m the ‘techy’ – taking care of computer issues that may arise, and creating the original website. I also take care of the administration and customer support.
