I was born and raised in Kansas City, MO. I attended Central High School, and under graduate degree (Business degree) from University of MO in Kansas City, Mo. Also attended Central Missouri State University to get my Masters degree (Teaching degree).
I've been married to the soulful father (now deceased) of my beautiful daughter, DeAnna Michelle. I have one grand daughter whose name is Elise. The is the renewing spirit that often brightens my existence. (Said the proud grand mother: me)
My thoughts about who I am: I'm sincere about reaching any goal I set for myself. And I'd like to say I always reach my goals, but that wouldn't be the truth. I love helping people as my friends will attest. My hobbies are knitting, reading, listening to music, watching movies (old and new) and participating in water aerobics.
The quote below mirrors my thoughts exactly:
"I looked up the road I was going and back the way I come, and since I wasn't satisfied, I decided to step off the road and cut me a new path."
Wouldn't Take Nothing For My Journey Now, by Maya Angelou
