Do you have any pets?
Yes, we have a Bichon/ Miniature Poodle mix with an amber-red coat, so we named her “Ginger”. Her breed is called a “Bich-Poo.” We love her but she can sure be one at times!

Where is your favorite place to eat?
My favorite place to eat is G Migs in Valley Junction, West Des Moines. Nothing fancy, really good food in a bar-like atmosphere.

What do you like the most about living in the Des Moines area?
I like the people here. I have a lot of good friends that are down to earth, honest and caring. I also like the size of the City and its amenities, a good mix of recreation, entertainment and the arts.

Where would you choose to live: by the ocean, in the mountains or in the woods?
I would live in the mountains. I grew up in Lakewood, Colorado a suburb of Denver and when I was young we would drive up into the mountains to ski, golf and hike whenever there was a chance. Beautiful scenery, wildlife and fresh air. Best thunderstorms ever!
