My name is Amanda Danielle Gardner. Everyone calls me by my middle name (thanks to my mother), Danielle. My hometown is Shelbyville, MO where I was born and raised. I went to North Shelby, in Shelbyville, for elementary, middle school, and high school. I am married to Justin Gardner. He is a wonderful friend and husband, and he is very intelligent, talented, and fun. Together, we have an amazing son, Gus, who will 7 years old soon. I call Justin and Gus "my boys." My boys are my everything, along with my other family members and close friends. Justin, Gus, and I live in Saint Francis, Kansas (the FAR northwestern corner of the state).
I am an avid reader and love to learn. For the most part, I read non-fiction books on anything related to World War II. I also love to study law, the practice of law, and law-enforcement. In my downtime, you can find me playing with my husband and our son, reading, being a homemaker, and enjoying the outdoors. My family and I attend Gus's little league games (in any sport), go camping, fishing, and hiking together. My husband, son, and I make a great team and spend every second possible together!
I am looking forward to graduating from CMU in May of 2016!
