    Hello all!
    I am Kristy, 25 y/o married to Joe, 28. I have a 6 y/o step son that lives in Alabama, we are currently living in Florida. We have no children together unless you count our very spoiled Cocker Spaniel puppy! I am prior Navy, was active duty for 4 years, where I met my husband, who is still active duty and is an instructor here in Pensacola.
    I am starting my second year of school next Semester. I am a pre nursing major at Pensacola Junior College and hope to transfer to University of West Florida's BSN program in August 04. We'll see!
    Hope to hear from some fellow FL students and nurses.
