Family/Hobbies: I am engaged to Josh Oaks, who is also a WIU alumnus. We will be married in November 2012, in Macomb, with our reception on the campus of WIU. We both have great memories and bleed purple for WIU! My hobbies include taking pictures, crafting when time allows (scrapbooking, sewing), reading and doing community service.
