My favorite part of the Yakima Valley is... all four of the beautiful seasons.

When I was a child, I wanted to grow up to be... a Jedi knight and friend of Captain Solo.

First job I ever had was... lifeguard in Granger.

If a movie was made of my life, the actor/actress I’d want to play me is... totally Jada Pinkett-Smith.

The best gift I ever received was... my amazing children.

The best piece of advice I ever received was... life is a compromise...learning when you should and when you shouldn’t.

My favorite dessert is... strawberry cheesecake and Mountain Dew.

One of my most memorable moments, besides getting married or having children was... while surfing in Hawaii, I was taking a break on the board. A sea turtle popped his head out of the water in front of me. I, of course, had no clue it was a turtle and yelled, “Dragon!” Panicked, I fell off the board, frantically trying to get back on the board and away from the “dragon.” The locals had a field day, teasing’s one of my favorite memories.

If I could witness any event past, present, or future, I would want to see... I would love to witness all my children find their “happy ever after.”

I’d love to learn how to... drive a race car.

The furthest I have been away from home is when I went to... Jamaica.

My favorite leisure activity or hobby is... golfing or swimming.

If I didn’t have to worry about money, I’d spend my time... traveling the world with my family.

The one word that best describes me is... feisty.

If I could change one thing about myself it would be... talking too much...and learn to listen more.
