Best thing about living in the Yakima Valley is: Besides all four beautiful seasons, it has to be the fresh produce during harvest. Cherries, apples, asparagus, all at our front door.

When I was a child, I wanted to grow up to be: When I was a third grader I wanted to be a veterinarian until I realized there was more to it than just petting baby animals.

First job I ever had was: Sorting cherries for Bob Burns.

The most famous person I’ve met is: I don’t think that I’ve met anyone super famous. Ron Kenoly or Queensryche I guess.

The best gift I ever received was: I would say motherhood & love. When people genuinely love is the best gift ever.

The best piece of advice I ever received was: “You have to care for yourself first. No one else can do it for you especially when it comes to your health and happiness”

My favorite food is: Pasta.

One of my most memorable moments, besides getting married or having children was: Watching Seattle win the Super Bowl with my favorite Seahawk fan in the world, my dad.

If I could witness any event past, present, or future, I would want to see: Woodstock Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Creedence Clearwater Revival; talk about music history.

The person I’d like to meet, sit with and talk to for an hour is: The president. In order to understand a person it’s important to converse & exchange views to understand one another’s perspective.

I’d love to learn how to: Cook like both of my beautiful & dearly missed grandmothers.

The furthest I have been away from home is when I went to: Utah or California.

My favorite leisure activity or hobby is: Listening to good music and going for a long drive.

If I didn’t have to worry about money, I’d spend my time: Open a private school for differently-abled children, with caring, hand selected staff dedicated to watching students flourish in their own special way.

The one word that best describes me is: Genuine.

If I could change one thing about myself it would be: I hate that I wear my heart on my sleeve. Sometimes it’s a good thing but sometimes it’s not.
