When and why did you move to Hermiston?
I moved to Hermiston from Stanfield right after high school. I think I was looking for a town that was a little less small, and had a few more things. It’s become my home, and I dread the thought of ever leaving this community.
What is your favorite place to eat in Hermiston?
Anyone who knows me would agree that it’s La Palma. Every server who works there already knows my order when I go in, which I appreciate. I’m also a HUGE fan of Delish Bistro and Veg Out and Lawan’s... I like to eat.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I spend my spare time in my yard with my hands in the dirt. Landscaping and gardening is my jam.
What surprises you about Hermiston?
I think I stand with everyone else when I say how fast it has grown. We now have some traffic during the evening and it’s weird.
What is the last book you read or are currently reading?
I’m currently reading “It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way” by Lysa Terkeurst, and “Altar Ego” by Craig Groeschel.
What app or website do you use most?
Amazon, YouTube and Instagram.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I’ve been trying to get to Punta Cana for a while... so there. Or the Maldives.
What is the funniest thing that’s happened to you?
One time my husband sent me to Autozone for sailboat fuel additive...I’ll leave that one right there. But in my defense it was during state dance season, and I was running on empty. My life is always funny thanks to him.
What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?
Expanding my photography business in all the ways.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Raising two kids who have the biggest, kindest, most generous hearts. They care so much about people. And if we are talking more recently, helping lead HHS Dance to a state title! Go team!
