Q: When did you move to the Basehor area, and what brought you here?
A: I moved back in 2000, after living in the Chicago and the St. Louis areas and wanted to be back by my large family. My mother is the oldest of 11 kids, and I missed being around our large family. Most of the family is in the Leavenworth area, so I decided to move back to the Kansas City area and ended up meeting my husband and started a family.

Song: So many. I love all types of music, but if I had to pick one recently, it would be Keith Urban’s “Only You Can Love Me this Way”.
Food: Steak and a baked potato and fresh-picked sweet corn. Really spoiled by my husband. He likes to grill outside a lot, so we tend to cook out a lot over the summer.
