Star Wars. Is there any other answer to be given?
- Are you married? Kids? Tell us about them!
My husband and I will celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary this year. (He is also a hard-working Panel Built employee.) We have 8 kids: Ashley will turn 21 this year and is in her sophomore year at Young Harris College. Zander is 14 and is an amazing artist. Jace is 13 and is our sports fanatic. Lucy is 11 and she’s our animal lover. Parker is 9 and is a huge Star Wars fan. Gage is 7 and he loves all things superhero related. Carly is 5 and is our girly-girl. And Sawyer is 3 and is ALL BOY. He keeps me on my toes more than any of the others. One fun thing our family does is that we each have our own Superhero that we share certain character traits. If you look at the back of our Suburban, you’ll see all 10 super hero logos along the bumper.
- Where did you grow up?
I was born in NE Ohio and spent the first 11 years of my life there. At 11 years old, I moved to the NW suburbs of Chicago and stayed there for 11 years. After that, I moved back to Ohio. That’s where I met Gene and eventually, we moved down here.
- What is your favorite childhood memory?
Any memory that involves my Daddy. I lost him to a rare form of cancer when I was 19, but the memories I have of him before that time are some of the most precious to me.
