Yes! Attending Reunion

Let's see....I've lived in the Great Northwest since 1982. I've been busy raising my six kids, going back to school a few times, and now I'm busy teaching high school PE and Health (after six years teaching Math to middle schoolers!). In my "spare" time, I run a farm on my 20 acres in Duvall. Josh and I rent out goats for brush clearing, and we also raise lamb. So, right now I've got about 75 goats, 50 sheep, three cows, and 100 hens. We also have geese, ducks, dogs, a llama and rabbits. My kids also keep me busy with their sports, so I'm rarely bored! I've to three grown, one in college, and a 11th and 9th grader this year. I'm hoping to have grandbabbies soon so I can dote on them and spoil them. Till then, we're busy parenting, farming, and working!

What did you want to do, or think you wanted to do when you finished high school?

be a "career woman"...thought I wanted to be a doctor

What did you always want to do that you haven't done yet?

travel the world!

Where's the farthest that you've been from Baton Rouge?

Northwestern Canada

What would we be surprised to know about you?

I'm an organic farmer and I lease out goats for environmental land clearing

If you could relive your time at Baton Rouge High, what would be the biggest thing that you would change?

I'd have focused more on enjoying the moment and not be so caught up in myself. I battled bulimia from age 15-25 and that totally messed with my high school experiences!
