What is your favorite place to eat in Hermiston?
My favorite place to eat is Ixtapa. I can’t get enough Mexican food.
What do you like to do in your spare time?

I guess I’m surprised how everyone seems connected here, in one way or another. I’m from a much bigger, more populated area!

Pinterest, definitely. I get a lot of art inspiration from there.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
If I could travel anywhere, I think it would have to be to Europe. Greece, France, Spain ... pick one!
What is the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you?
I was in a store and I was going through the discount carts up by the registers. I found a pack of red meat at the bottom of one, and vocally expressed my disgust. Then a man came around the corner and stared at me. Apparently that was his cart. I laughed for days. Lesson learned: if you don’t see clearance stickers, it’s probably not part of the clearance...
What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?
One of my goals in the next 12 months is to move and get settled in Las Vegas. My husband recently started a new career there.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
My kids. They’re pretty fantastic!
