What’s Happening Hermiston Facebook page
When and why did you move to Hermiston?
Lived here off and on growing up, but my dad worked for the Union Pacific Railroad so we moved around a lot. When he retired in 1994 we moved back because my mom’s family grew up here.
What is your favorite place to eat in Hermiston?
Hands down, Hales!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Hang out with family, whether it’s barbecues or watching movies, I love spending time with them, including my siblings and their families.
What surprises you about Hermiston?
The constant growth. As you look around Hermiston you always see something new or things changing.
What was the last book you read?
Definitely a children’s book to my great nephew because I truly hate to read…but I always encouraged my kids to read growing up, and now encourage my nephews and my great nephew because I don’t want them growing up hating it like I did.
What website or app do you use most other than Facebook?
Snapchat! Seriously, my friends and I have a great time with those filters!
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
Hawaii or the Bahamas
What is the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you?
Well my friend, Tammy Malgesini, and I used to work together and we loved playing pranks on each other all the time, and one time she was leaving on vacation for a couple of weeks and decided that come Monday morning, I should have to start my day out with a scavenger hunt! She literally hid all of my keys to open all the inside doors and cabinets to all the client charts and left the first clue on my desk with a riddle to solve to find the next clue, which was another riddle. There were riddles in the Pepsi machine, in the bathroom, in the staff lounge, and all I could do was laugh going from riddle to riddle and plot my revenge!
What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?
To eat healthy and always take care of myself!
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Definitely my three children who’ve become kind, caring, giving, and responsible adults, because without them I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
