Ten things you don’t know about me!
- Even though I live in Colorado, and have no accent, I grew up in a small town in rural south Georgia and consider myself a southerner. (Yes, I drink Diet Coke for breakfast, love grits, and can’t pronounce pen and pin to save my life!)
- I went by my given middle name, Dawne (with a silent e), until college.
- I was a Girl Scout for ten years. I earned an insane number of badges for everything from horseback riding, to sewing, to water conservation.
- My first real job was working at a fast food restaurant called Jerry J’s as the drive thru cashier.
- My first car was a lima green 1971 Ford Maverick, aptly called the lima bean. Now I drive a twenty-year old Miata. I consider it a step up.
- I spent one summer working as a counselor at a camp for the blind. This was an amazing experience, I loved it.
- I am an inventor on a patent titled Biological production of tetradehydrolycopene and six others. I worked as a research scientist for four years and now work as a patent agent.
- I met my husband when I was twenty years old. We have three kids, a daughter and identical twin boys.
- To celebrate a friend’s birthday, I ran a half-marathon with her. Yes, I admit, I would have much rather gone to Las Vegas!
- I watched the entire Vampire Diaries series three times.
