I have been happily married since 2003 to Johnathan Brown. We lived in Muskogee, Ok the first 3 years of our marriage while I was finishing school. Our first child Addison was born in Muskogee. We moved back home shortly before her first birthday and have lived in the same house since with our 3 dogs and 1 cat. During the time we have lived back home we have added 3 more children to our house Gavin, Kinley, and Emmelia. Addison, Gavin, and Kinley all attend Talihina Public Schools. Emmelia is not quite old enough but she will also attend Talihina when she turns 4. We are so blessed to be able to live in the place we have called home for the majority of our lives!
