Choose Wisely

  • Location: Chugiak,
I am a 38 year old mother of 4 children with over 60 food allergies between my husband, myself, and our kids that has overcome cervical cancer at 19 years old and told I could not have children, then proceeded to birth 3 at home in my living room. I am a wife of a Marine Corps combat vet that had 3 tours in Iraq, along with the initial invasion of Operation Enduring Freedom. I am a caretaker through and through. I care for all my friends special needs kids that babysitters reject and are deemed too difficult to manage. According to my kids, I am a "Kid Poop Nurse." I was an EMT/Firefighter, CNA, and cared for my elders physical needs as young as 12 years old. I would own a farm if I could, but have cared for horses, goats, emus, pigs, miniature donkeys, dragons, cats, dogs, snakes, guinea pigs, and can go on and on. Because of my families food allergies, we frequent the U-pick farms and I can and preserve as many fresh fruits and vegetables for our family. I make most foods from scratch, while working full-time. People always ask me how I do so much all the time, I always reply...We all have the same 24 hrs in a day, choose wisely.
