How did you happen to select/end up in your career?

I split from the FD area in 1981 and needed to find a career to support myself and my children. They were quite young so I decided I should just get a 2 yr degree. I chose health care (maybe because my mom and sister were nurses) and went to the community college in Cedar Rapids. They happened to have a AAS degree program in Electroneurodiagnostics (EEGs and related tests). Having always thought the brain to be cool and interesting, I decided to enroll in the program. I am still doing that work...it has been a very good fit for me. A good blend of technology and patient care...no two days are the same, so it keeps it fresh!

Grandchildren:

Larissa, Christiana, Aaliyah...all Jerod's girls. Brooke doesn't have any children

Do you still have family around Fort Dodge?

No

Where else have you lived? How did you happen to move there?

Iowa City, Quad Cities, Dallas area; in Twin Cities since 1987

Do you still see/talk to/hang out with any classmates? Who?

No

What are some life lessons you've learned or words of wisdom that have inspired you?

Everyone just stay calm...

Communication is essential...for progress, anyway!

You can choose your actions but you can't choose the consequences...

You can't change other people, you can only change yourself

Any favorite books, movies or vacations that you'd recommend to others?

Belize was amazing! My favorite vacation yet!

Me with my digging tool during the Winter Carnival Medallion Hunt. Every January I take 2 weeks off of work for the hunt (as do many of my friends). My sister, Julie, comes up from Texas to hunt and just "be sisters" for that 2 weeks. We have a blast! Haven't found the medallion yet but it's worth $10k if you find it!!!
