Comments:

Hello 79ers! Since grad, went to college and played sports, did a couple of Euro volleyball tours, taught physical education, coached, was a dorm mom, married my college sweetheart, became a high school college advisor, currently a college admissions consultant.

For a yet to be determined reason, my husband and I waited quite a while to have kids. Our second child was born when I was in my forties. This allowed me the unique experience of having post-partum and pre-menopausal symptoms simultaneously:-) Our kids keep us laughing and humble. We are grateful to God!

We are involved in our church, I dabble in music and on occasion we attempt to play sports with our kids. The mind is willing, but the legs are weak!

School Story:

I remember choir trips, and the last play of the volleyball season landing between Pam Katzenbach and I as we both shouted "yours!" In looking back, I think I talked and laughed my way through classes, and did very little homework. Pam, Lori Mansveld, Kim Cooney, Lisa Turman, Deann Hurley and I drove way too fast trying to be the first in line for lunch at La Comida.

What have you always wanted to do that you haven't done yet?

Sing the National Anthem at a Pro-Sports event without a wardrobe malfunction

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Hang out with my family, sing, read, walk.

Where is the farthest you have been from home?

Germany

Where is your favorite place to go?

Oregon and Lake Tahoe

Why?

In the past few years while on vacation, we have rediscovered the Oregon Coast, the area surrounding Crater Lake and Grants Pass jet boat rides. Lake Tahoe's beauty rivals (almost) Oregon's lakes.

Other than earrings, do you have any body piercings?

No

Do you have any tattoos (that you are willing to admit)?

No

If you could ask anyone who has ever lived a question, who would it be and what would you ask?

My father died when I was eight. I would like to ask him about life when he was young. It would also be amazing to see him with his grandchildren.

What would we be suprised to know about you?

I'm my own grandpa.
