Belinda is a travel nurse. We enjoy family, traveling, and going out to dinner. In addition, I love to grill...ribs are my specialty!† We have three amazing children, two daughters and one son. Our oldest daughter Brianna is a Nurse living in Charleston SC. My middle child is Derrick Jr. is currently a graduate assistant at Marshall University working on his masterís degree.

They are fun to work with, and watching them learn and grow is extremely rewarding. Every day is an adventure!
