Comments:

It is hard to believe that it has been 25 years since we graduated and left high school. I remember back them, our age now, in the 40s, seemed ancient. But, here we are, not that old or ancient at all.

After HS, I went to SVCC for a year, then got married way too young and moved to the east coast for a year with the now ex husband. I came back to the west coast a year later - finished my undergraduate degree in electrical engineering at Seattle University. I worked for Boeing for awhile, then moved on to engineering consulting. That was pretty fun, I worked for Sparling, RW Beck, and a small company in between there. But, alas, that type of corporate life does not make me excited or feed my soul properly.

I am married, no kids (yet). I know, probably waited too long, but you have to be ready for them, right? I am married to the most amazing man, my sweetheart and best friend. We have been married for almost four years now, and life is pretty darned good. We live on Queen Anne in a sweet little spot, with my twelve year old beagle, Shorty.

I am an Associate Broker with Windermere Real Estate. How do you get from electrical engineer to real estate sales? Via a soul searching interlude of unemployment and taking the summer off to play. Nothing like a summer off to realize that you are not doing what gives you life. I love my work - all of it. It gives me great pleasure and satisfaction to help people accomplish their goal of buying a home. Sometimes it is the challenge of selling - all of it a complicated puzzle of marketing, negotiation, and human interaction. I love it all.

Right now, I am focusing on living life and enjoying it. Art and I are planning on adopting a child in the near future. We are avid travellers, we are planning a trip for the fall to Portugal and Spain. And, lately, we have been the barbeque experts on our block.

So, if you are up on the hill, on a sunny day, we just might be outside. Stop by and say hi!

You can also see what I am doing on Facebook. Friend me.

School Story:

My best memories of high school revolve around the summer vacations. Lazy summer vacations, going to the beach, getting someone to buy us beer and hanging out. Me, Jeanette Sammons and Tracy Carr, getting into just a little bit of trouble.

I hope you two are coming to the reunion. If not, well, then, I will see you guys later!

Which junior high did you attend?

North Whidbey Junior High
