Whitney considers herself a lucky lady to be surround by all boys in her house! This teacher-turned-stay at home mom is constantly entertained by hubby Grant, sons Anders (3) and Nels (1), and furry pal, Gordon. She's a self-proclaimed funny girl who stays active by golfing and biking with Grant and taking walks to the park with her boys. Whitney is seemingly handy in the kitchen and loves inviting her boys to pull up their step stools to join in the fun. Connecting with friends and strengthening relationships are at the core of this extrovert's heart. After some good conversation, she always walks away feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the demand's of this life.
