Position at RAK: Operations Manager
Originally from: Illinois
Family: Married. Two children: Jaden (born in 2002) and Loren (born in 2005).
Work background: With RAK since 1997.
How do you like to spend your time away from work? Reading, movies, cooking, spending time with my children.
If you could vacation anywhere, where would it be? Sicily—my family is from there, and I would love to go to the little village they are from, take in the sights and enjoy the food.
Aside from food, water, shelter or your mate, what one thing could you not go a day without? #1 Seeing or speaking to my children. #2 That one really good cup of coffee in the morning.
How have your children inspired or influenced you? My son will spell check me in a heartbeat, so I always proofread my texts or notes…and I never, ever use slang like OMG or LOL when communicating with him. My vocabulary has expanded greatly just to keep up with him.
My daughter’s love of nature has made me slow down and appreciate the simple beauty of a tiny flower she picks for me, or the chirping bird on the tree outside her window each morning. Which brings calm to my sometimes hectic day.
Favorite Valley hangout/hot spot: Home!
