I’d/I/I’ll: I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hungry/ I believe every day should end (or start) with dessert/ I’ll always be first in line at the buffet.
My First Pet: Taffy – I was 5 years old, my sisters had a lot going on and my Mom & Dad asked what I wanted -not wanting me to feel left out. My response, “A dog” (it was even my first word). They took me to the animal shelter and there was a litter of black and yellow lab mixes. Taffy was hyper and shy all at the same time and totally covered in filth – I knew that would be the one for me. He was my boy for 14 years and largely responsible for the path I have traveled. I am so grateful for that head-strong mutt and the foundation he created.
Favorite Guilty Pleasure Song: Manfred Mann – Doo Wah Diddy. Makes me smile like non-other. Every time I hear it, I am instantly transported to childhood. My younger sister and I used to dance on our beds and sing it while we were supposed to be sleeping. I can still hear my parents storming up the stairs…
In my spare time I can be found: Hiking with my dogs, canoeing/kayaking, fixing up our farm, lounging with my 4-legged crew, exploring the countryside American picker style, trying new restaurants or frequenting favorite ones – I love food!

I’d/I/I’ll: I’d love to one day go on an extended adventure in an RV visiting all the National parks in the US./ I have so many interests, passions, hobbies and goals in life that I often feel overwhelmed that I won’t get to experience everything that I hope to. There’s just oo much life to live, and so little time! / I’ll one day get my private investigator license and solve a cold case! (my life’s pipe dream)
My First Pet: 2 fancy rats names Opis & Jenna – I got them through my high school’s magnet program that I was apart of. My parents were unaware that after I finished that class, the rats were mine to keep! SURPRISE!
Favorite Guilty Pleasure Song: “Take On Me” – AHA. There is never NOT a good time to dance to this song.
In my spare time I can be found: I love to take spontanieous road trips with my husband Matt and son Dallas – it doesn’t matter where we go or what we are doing, we always have fun!, taking photos, practicing my hand lettering/calligraphy, crafting and spending as much time outdoors as I can. I also spend what is probably considered an unhealthy amount of time looking up missing person and cold cases :).

My First Pet: A pony named Padre. He bucked me off many times but I still pursued riding.
Favorite Guilty Pleasure Song: Any Beyonce Song = “Don’t Worry. Beyonce.” And whatever the DJ plays because, “I just wanna dance!”
In my spare time I can be found: Going out to eat- Nachos & Margaritas are my favorite!, enjoying the weather outside during my favorite season: spring, shopping at Target – I can never get out of there without spending $100!, or at home on the couch watching reality TV or napping.

I’d/I/I’ll: I’d love for all of my days to be spent scuba diving, kayaking and /or bicycling. I am active in wildlife conservation with a strong interest in protecting our oceans and the fragile animals that call them home/ I’ll admit it, my husband Bill is my best friend!
