WHAT GOT YOU INTO THIS LINE OF WORK?

FIRST JOB: “When I was 16 years old I wanted a job so bad because I wanted a phone line in my room, which was the best thing to do as a teenager back in my day. I applied to be a Recreation Aide for the Clovis Recreation Center in 1998.”
FAMILY/KIDS: “I have a small family. I’m married to my husband Anthony Randolph who has been my college sweetheart since 1999. We got married on Friday, March 13, 2015 and it’s been amazing. I also have two furry babies. Their names are Morpheus (2 years old) and Niko (1 year old), and they are both male German Shepherds. I can say that I married my best friend and I adore my boys.”
ROAD TO CLOVIS: “I have lived in Clovis for 27 years and plan on staying here to raise my family. My parents moved my two siblings and I from Santa Barbara to Clovis because the cost of living [on the coast] was too expensive.”

FAVORITE BOOK OR AUTHOR: “I know this may sound a little silly, but my favorite book of all time is a child’s book. The book is called ‘Love You Forever’ by Robert Munsch. Every time I read that book, I shed a tear. I recommend that parents read the book to their babies.”
FAVORITE SPORTS TEAM(S): Los Angeles Lakers
“It is tough for me to see LeBron James a Laker, since I am not a fan of his, but hey if he can help switch up the way my team has been playing the last few years then I am all in. I cannot wait to see how far my Lakers will go.”
