What are your hobbies or interests?

I like working in my yard, which I have not done enough of this year.

When you found out you were elected employee of the quarter, how did it feel?

To be nominated and selected by your peers is a real honor and I was really humbled by it.

What is your dream vacation?

I just like to drive and stop at each town and check it out as I go, which I have not done much of but it is a good dream.

What is your favorite part about living in Roosevelt County?

I like the small town atmosphere and it was a nice, safe place to raise my children.

Who are some of your favorite musical acts?

Not just one, I like all kinds of music, mainly country.

What is a memorable Halloween costume you have had?

One year we sat in my front yard in sheets and jumped at the Trick or Treaters when they came up. Lots of fun.
