My Life Since Graduation
As I was always very shy, I never dreamed that I would spend my life in a "people" business.  I have been a member of the real estate community for many years and currently work and travel with a national company selling properties at auction.  Maintaining education requirements for the many licenses required has almost become another full time job!

I have three sons, two daughters-in-law and three grandchildren. Two of them, Bill and John, live in Florida.  Rick lives close by.  Bill has two little girls (Bailey is two and Lia is 3 months).  Rick has a son, Tyler, who is soon to be two.  All precious and beautiful.  John is single - just searching for the right one.

My "hobby" has been involvement with the Boy Scouts of America.  As a Den Mother, I did not realize that that was the beginning of a long association (28 years) with this organization.  I have served on local, regional and national committees and events through the years and have met many wonderful people who have become lifelong friends.  I have been serving as Camp Director in Richmond, VA for the past few summers (my vacation??).  Green knee socks, extreme heat, 2000 Cub Scouts, gallons and gallons of "bug juice" - what could be more fun?
