Personal
After growing up on the Plaza and later raising three daughters in Leawood, my husband, Bill, and I decided to forgo city life and build “Grandma and Grandpa’s House” on ten-acres in Stilwell. We have two crazy, rowdy Australian Shepherds, a five-pound Pomapoo, and six grandchildren that we absolutely adore.
Interests
Anything outdoor - gardening, lawn care, hiking, walking the dogs, or just enjoying the beautiful Kansas sunsets.
Reading - never without my Kindle!
Dog training, although my dogs seem to be slow learners!
