PATRIOT OF THE MONTH
Tell us a little about yourself?
I have been married to a wonderful man for 26 yrs. He had 2 sons and we have 6 grandchildren and 2 from my business partner. We are so blessed! We have lived in TX since 2010 and have lived all over this great nation. One of my hobbies is stained glass, and I have loved training my dogs.
I became and practiced as an RN for 15 years. When I left that career I went to the Napa Valley and got involved in winemaking, viticulture, and wine marketing and sales. It was fun but it wasn’t serving anyone. About the time I thought I should look for something new, I was contacted by a woman who brought me into the company that made me a business owner.
I have been able to utilize my skills and education in this position. I am building a large business with others who also want to serve their community, and want the associated freedom that comes with it.
How long have you been a member of POB?
I have been a member of POB since early 2020.
To you, whats the importance of groups like POB?
The importance of this particular group is it’s fundamental belief in liberty and self-pursuit of excellence in our businesses. In addition, it is a place where ppl who believe in our Constitution and Bill of Rights can gather together in one pursuit: freedom
What is a Patriot to you?
A Patriot is someone who is respectful of others, has a core understanding of their own role in standing up for this country and it’s heritage. We are people who will fight for these beliefs of our founding, of our independence, of our Constitution, and our state.
If you could have dinner with 1 person dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Family comes to mind, however just one…it has to be George Washington. Anyone who knows me, knows how much I admire him. When I visit Bentonville, I always seek out his portrait at the museum. I lived near Valley Gorge when I was a child. Dad took us there soon after arriving in PA. We went the first brutal winter to visit his log cabin and Dad told us the story of the battle after we took off our coats and boots and had struggled through the snow.
We had a relative who fought and lived along side Washington. I’d ask him everything about the times and his decision making for his men, what he wished for, what worried him… his strategies, his life.
