She was born on October 24, 1973 in Lincoln, Illinois. She moved to Delaware in 1997. She is a graduate of Eisenhower High School, in Decatur, IL and Immaculata University. She was a Case Manager for Fellowship Health Resources. She loved camping, decorating, and crayon coloring. She was a fan of novelist James Patterson.
