I was raised in Hawarden, Iowa. In 1981 I took the big jump and moved to Oklahoma City, where I met my husband Tony and started a life and family. I have 2 stepdaughters and a daughter of my own. We now have a total of 9 grandchildren. My hobbies are gardening, canning, working in the yard and sewing. We have 1 dog named "Charlie" a chocolate lab, 2 cats "Spazy" and "Ted", and several chickens which I dearly adore. I have worked in this field for the last 21 years and I Love it! There is never a dull moment!!
