What did you want to do or think you were going to do when you finished high school?

I was going to be a lawyer. I went off to Judson Baptist College and made it a semester. Came home and went to business school to become a legal secretary. Met the love of my life in 1981 and he was killed on our wedding day March 23, 1982. (6 hours before we were to be married). Married on the rebound, divorced 3 years later and was a single mom. Then eventually got married again and studied Medical Billing and Medical Transcription. Worked in the field between having babies and had to retire from it in 2004 when I became disabled with RA, Fibromyalgia and PTSD. So I have 4 children and 8 grandchildren. I presently read and review for many authors. I love to color and Bible Journaling.

What are some other jobs you have had in the past?

medical transcriptionist, medical biller, cocktail waitress

School Story:

I moved to Medford in my start of 10th grade. I met most of the classmates in my sophmore year and continued with them through high school. I kept to a small group but happened to be a class clown in many ways. Especially when it came to Ecology class with Mr. Jensen. One day I threw a chalk eraser not expecting it to connect with anything but it connected with Mr. Fink's bald head. Thank the class that they all busted up and so did Mr. Fink. But the look on Mr. Jensen's face was not of laughter. Still a funny memory. I was not much for dating. B average student but still dated off and on. Dated Kevin Crawford and Doug Ainsworth. Prom date for Senior year was Doug Gould.

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

I want to ride with Nascar Driver Jeff Gordon #24. I also want to attend a Celine Dion concert. Both way too expensive. But I can dream!!! A cruise to Alaska is in the making.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love to read, write and then chat with my friends on the computer. I also like to list on Marketplace to declutter and spend time with my hubby and church family. Presently writing my first novel and have been writing some non-fiction on all different types of abuse that plague America. I love to color and do Bible Journaling.

Where is the farthest you have been from home?

Victoria Canada

Where is your favorite place to go?

Oregon Coast

Why?

I was born in Portland and raised in Medford from 10th grade up. I lived in Idaho and the inexpensive way to live compared to other states for 16 years and have returned to Oregon. I love going to the beach. I loved attending the 30th Class Reunion and think that this site along with Facebook put more faces together for us all, which made the Reunion a success.

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

My father...Why?

What would we be suprised to know about you?

Not much has really changed about me since we graduated except I am not as outgoing in person as I am on the phone or on the computer.

Disabled since 2004 but I keep trucking on. Isn't that what a member of the Class of 1979 from MSHS does?

Happy Birthday Girl! You live in the town I wish I lived in. I am a Debbie Macomber fan and have read all her books except the newer ones. I am a Cedar Cove nut as well. Take care and I hope you had a good birthday.
