Team Spotlight

What is your favorite part about being an Office Manager at KS&R?
Every day is different. No two days are the same. It has been like that for the 30 years that I have been here.

If you had unlimited funds to build a house that you would live in for the rest of your life, what would the finished house be like?
Log cabin. I would definitely have to have the logs inside. Not like some that have the sheet rock as walls. I like the log cabin look inside.

What would be your first question after waking up from being cryogenically frozen for 100 years?
Who's the president? Although, I probably wouldn't know the person's name after 100 years.

What fictional place would you most like to go?
Coal Valley. It is a mining town from the show 'When Calls the Heart' on the Hallmark channel. It is set back in the 1900s.

What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I think people would think the fact that I turned 13 on Friday June 13th, the same day the 'Friday the 13th' movie came out is surprising. The movie opened with the date of June 13, 1980. That was when I turned 13. Also, I grew up on a dairy farm. My mother's grandparents' farm was located where the Syracuse Airport is now. My parents met there. My dad was one of the farm hands.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Teleportation. I like going places, but the time it takes is too long. I would rather just be there.

If someone narrated your life, who would you want to be the narrator?
Kathy Bates. I like her as an actress and I think she has a cool voice.

What's the worst thing you have eaten out of politeness?
My mom used to make us turtle soup with snapping turtles. It was disgusting. She would use the snapping turtles that came into the pond that the cows would drink out of.

What animal would be cutest if scaled down to the size of a cat?
A horse. I love horses.

What's something common from your childhood that will seem strange to future generations?
Sunday dinners. Everyone came around on Sundays. I was the youngest of nine, so I had a lot of nieces and nephews who were closer to me in age. I would get excited about who was coming to Sunday dinner because I got to play with them. People just don't do that anymore.
