I have been a member of MPIRMC since… August 2015
What I value the most from MPI is…that I feel surrounded by people who understand my job –from why we enjoy what we do to all the challenges that we face.
The most memorable MPI event that I’ve attended is…WEC 2016, bonding with new and old MPI friends and learning about so many ways to improve my processes or events immediately.
My favorite beverage (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) is…I love a good craft beer – Upslope Lager is my current favorite.
My favorite restaurant is…Edgewater Inn – since the mid-50’s my family has been going here after every birthday, funeral, wedding, baptism, and birth.
My most recent purchase on iTunes was…Running Up That Hill by Placebo
If I won the lottery, I would…take care of family needs and then take an extended vacation travelling the world.
My favorite quote is…“Planning is planning the future in the present so you can do something about it now.” – Alan Lakein and “I have an aversion to losing.” – Tom Hancock
If I could choose three people to play a round of golf with, living or deceased, they would be…my two 8 year old nieces and 4 year old nephew – I don’t play golf, so it’s the only way I could have any chance of winning.
If I had to choose between Mountains or Beach, I would choose…Beach. We have a mountain house, so it would be a new experience.
The one exotic country I would like to visit is…Montenegro
