About Us

We met many years ago while we were both in high school and developed a great friendship that has lasted as we built our lives together. Shortly after college, Brad proposed on New Year’s Eve and a year later we were married on one of our favorite beaches in California. While having experienced both exciting and challenging times, we have built a strong, trusting partnership that we look forward to sharing with our children. In January 2011, our daughter, Kennedy, entered our lives through an open adoption. She has brought us so much happiness! We have so much love to share, and we can’t wait to welcome our next child into our home!

All About Jessica by Brad

Jessica has been in my heart since I was a teenager. In fact, I often wonder how I ever lived without her. She has always demonstrated the ability to be compassionate to others and creative in her own way. Jessica has a heart of gold and the ability to empathize with all of her family and friends. She is an amazing mom. Whether it is preparing homemade organic food or attending mommy and me classes, she will always make time for our children. Jessica will teach our children to be independent thinkers and reach for any star or goal they want to achieve. She will always be the best mother I know.

All About Brad by Jessica

Brad has been an inspiration in my life since the first day I met him twenty years ago. He is always thinking of new ideas and is a naturally joyful, energetic person. Children have always made Brad truly happy. He has a unique way of connecting with kids of all ages whether it is playing a game, reading a book, or helping them with their homework. Brad was a kindergarten teacher before we were engaged and I had a chance to see his positive influence on young children. He is a wonderful, hands-on father who is eager to feed, change, and read to our children every day. Brad is my best friend, the person I trust the most in my life. I can’t wait to experience the joys of parenthood with him again!

Where We Work

We are both fortunate to have careers that we enjoy very much and employers who are very supportive as we build our family. Jessica works for a cosmetics company as the Vice President of Business Development, where she has the flexibility to work from home when necessary and ample vacation time. Her co-workers are all parents and understand the value of family time and that home life is the most important aspect to a successful career. Brad works for an internet technology company as the Director of Sales. He works from home and has a flexible schedule that will allow him to participate in school activities or run errands for our family.
