Stanfield Public Library director
When and why did you move to Stanfield?
I moved to Stanfield in 1993.
Where is your favorite place to eat in Hermiston?
I really love to try new things, so it is really hard to pick. It really depends on what I am in the mood for.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I enjoy reading, watching CSI and most off all watching my kids play sports and participate in activities.
What surprises you about Hermiston/Stanfield?
What surprises me most about Stanfield is how friendly everyone is and how they are willing to help whenever something is needed. What surprises me about Hermiston, is how willing businesses are to help with community events and the growth over the past 10 years.
What was the last book you read?
I am currently reading and listening to “Midnight Sun” by Stephanie Meyer.
What website or app do you use most other than Facebook?
During Covid... Should I admit I have been going crazy on Amazon? I should think about deleting that app off my phone.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
Egypt! I would love to see the pyramids.
What is the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you?
When I was 15 or 16, my brother and his friend were in his room playing (what I thought was a Star Wars video game) and was impressed with how close that game was to the movie. I ask if they could pull Yoda’s ears and they told me no, that you have to follow just like the movie. Of course I thought that was boring and left. Years later, we are sitting in my grandma's kitchen and he is telling her how gullible I was. That is when I learned it wasn’t a game and they had picked up the controller when I walked in just to mess with me.
Now I am thankful he has a wife to torment.
What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?
For the next 12 months I would like to focus on my family and the great things life has to offer.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
