I'm passionate about protecting children and teens from every type of abuse. America needs more trained volunteers with CASA, domestic violence shelters, rape and suicide hotlines, drug abuse counseling, homeless shelters, 'soup kitchens' and emergency food pantries. We need more foster parents and we need more mentors for high-risk teens. We need a better education system in America, and better health care for everyone throughout the world. We need honesty and accountability in corporate America, as well as genuine stewardship of the earth and all its life forms. We need every human in the world to never experience hunger again. We need all sexual abuse and 'sex slave trade' to end globally and especially when the victims are children.
I’ve worked in multiple careers. I called myself a "Jill of All Trades".
Jobs I've held are: factory & assembly line work, warehouse & shipping/receiving, professional cook, mental health tech, turkey farming, OTR solo trucker, & I worked my 'way up through the ranks' to management in retail, grocery, & restaurant jobs.
I am quite gregarious at times, but I also enjoy solitude and quiet times.
I'm eclectic in my music choices & genres of literature.
My choice of fun activities is diverse.
I love traveling to national or state parks.
I like to surround myself with folks who enjoy life & who view a stranger as a potential new friend.
I prefer folks that make lemonade out of life’s lemons & who don’t always look in the rearview mirror of their past.
Our mistakes & heartaches have made us who we are today, just as much as our successes have.
When my time is up on earth, I want to exclaim ‘What a wild & crazy ride!’ instead of thinking of regrets & ‘stinking thinking’!
What Gives Me Hope
God & my family
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
If I were the Mayor, I would implement "Green Energy" as soon as possible for all city government buildings. If I was the Governor, I would implement "Green Energy" ASP for all state buildings, and if I was the President, I would likewise convert all federal buildings to "Green Energy" too. This would create much needed jobs too!
