What should your business card say you do? Give it to me, and I’ll get it done.

Place of birth: Craig

When did you move to Moffat County, and what brought you here?

I was born here in 1970.

Describe your morning routine.

I am very busy getting my two daughters dressed and ready for school; they would rather watch cartoons. And getting the dogs put outside in the kennel; they would rather chase the cats in the barn. Finally I get myself to work, usually on time.

How would your friends describe you?

Quiet, shy, funny and/or sarcastic and a good listener.

Have you ever had a book change your life? What was it and why? “The Little House” series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I admired her life experiences and the fact that she shared them in her books so simply. She and her family struggled to survive in the West, and that is encouraging to me in our modern struggles.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a writer or a librarian.

If you could invite any four people over for dinner, who would they be and what would you serve?

I would serve lamb chops, creamed peas and potatoes, a green salad and chocolate cake with ice cream. I would invite my grandpa Dave Seely, as I never met him in life, my grandma Elva Seely and grandma Mary Seals because I miss them. The fourth would have to combine my daughters, as I would want them to meet their great-grandparents. (The rest of my family would be invited, too.)

What are the three things you can’t live without? My family, chocolate and my dogs.

What was your most embarrassing moment?

There are too many to list.

Which super hero would you be?

John Wayne

If you had to give up one of your five senses, which would it be?

Taste, then I wouldn’t enjoy chocolate so much and could finally succeed with a diet.

What band/performer would you stand in line to get tickets for?

Reba McEntire

What music, book or movie are you ashamed to admit you love?

I love “Gone With the Wind,” both the movie and the book. I read or watch them at least once a year.

What would you do if you won $10 million?

Take my family on a vacation and donate some to abused children and families of firemen who have lost their fathers.

What’s your New Year’s resolution?

Have more fun and travel with my family.
