I had an interesting upbringing in Ponca City, Oklahoma.  My two sisters and I were adopted when I was nine into a wholesome family.  We are all very close.  I left Ponca City to attend Oklahoma Christian College.  I studied office practices and secretarial sciences, which brought me to where I am today.  I love to visit my two children and seven grandchildren in Texas and Florida.

Why I like my work

People are friendly, cooperative and we help each other.  I enjoy being on the front-line to help our clients as they call or walk in the door.  I like helping them resolve their questions and concerns.

Outside of work

I enjoy spending time with my church, family and friends.  I love doing arts and crafts.  One of my favorite things is to repurpose furniture.  I like spending time outside on walks and riding my bike in the fresh air.  I love reading, watching movies, and being involved with my church activities.  I also like taking road trips to new, fun places.

People probably don’t know

I was a missionary in Kenya for six years.  I helped develop an orphanage into the Children’s’ Bible School and I made books for the kids.  It’s still going today, and children have grown up and become teachers.  We still communicate on Facebook and sometimes I surprise them when I answer in their native tongue.
