A little bit about me:
I grew up in Brookfield Wisconsin (suburb of Milwaukee) in a large family, I am the second oldest of 6 kids! I headed to St. Louis MO for college at Saint Louis University. Blake and I met in college and we got married on SLU's campus 2 years ago.  We have enjoyed living in Kirksville and are excited to stay for the next two years for rotations.  I teach full day pre-school at the Early Childhood Learning Center and I love it! I enjoy running, reading, eating anything with chocolate, cheering on Notre Dame football, and hanging out with friends.

Also - the picture is from the corn maze we did last fall right outside of should all check it out next fall! It is so fun!

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?
Ireland, for sure! I am 100% Irish and besides my youngest brother (and he is only 13) I am the only one in my family who has not been!!

If you could eat at any restaurant for your birthday what would it be?
You are all going to laugh BUT it would be Panera! I love love love Panera (or Bead Co as it is call in St. Louis) and its one thing I miss a lot living here in Kville!

Best birthday memory?
It was not on my actual birthday, but as a gift for my 10th birthday I got to go to the American Girl Place in Chicago with my Mom,  best friend Jackie and her Mom for both of our birthdays (hers is in April too).  We took the train from Milwaukee to Chicago (so fun!) and spent the day shopping for our dolls, seeing the American Girl Show, getting an American Girl Magazine cover picture with our dolls,eating lunch with our dolls, and having so much fun!

What is your favorite movie?
Adult movie- When Harry Met Sally

Your Birthday: April 15th
Hi I am Jenn. I am 29 years old. I like long walks on the beach and cake. :)

What was the Best Job you've ever had?
Burger King swing shift. College. 2002. I would ride my bike to work at 5pm and at 3am ride my bike back to my apartment. I ate my dinner on the curb outside the building and watch the sunset behind the mountains. I worked with a skinny high school boy and a fluffy, grouchy, 40-something lady. I enjoyed most of my summer there until one tragic day someone had the nerve to steal my bike! You know what they say "no bike. no ride." So I quit. I will never eat at Burger King again, and neither should you! :)

if you could eat at any restaurant for your birthday what would it be?
Carlos Bakery In New Jersey. (ever seen Cake Boss) uhhhh.....don't all those bakery treats sounds so delish?

Favorite Band: Hanson--first cd and I'll listen to them til the day I die

Favorite TV Shows: Kardashians, Grey's Anatomy, Modern Family, Up All Night, the BACH, classic Friends and Seinfeld!! (please no judging, it's my birthday)
