DFC Beaverhead

  1. Favorite kind of book: Historical non-fiction / fiction
    2. Best gift ever received: I can’t think of any one thing, but a lot of little things…Here’s a few: the poem my daughter’s kindergarten teacher gave me on the first day of school; an agate from the Oregon coast that my cousin found and knew I’d love; a necklace from my grandpa I got when I was little; a Basset Hound puppy named Rufus on my 14th birthday; a tiny bonsai tree my sister gave me for my first Mother’s Day (14 years later it’s 4 feet tall); a painting my Grandma did in an old frying pan when she was younger that she gave me as a housewarming gift when we bought our house.
    3. Your motto: “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” -Maya Angelou
    4. Favorite sport: To watch: my kids play softball & baseball. To play: Golf. I’m terrible at it, but I love golfing with other terrible golfers
    5. Where did you grow up? St. Regis, MT
    6. I can’t start my day until…I’ve had tea (winter) or my vitamin energy drink (summer)
    7. Something interesting about you: When I was 18, I lived and worked on a crab processing ship in Alaska
    8. Pet Peeve: loud noises in quiet places
    9. I’ve never seen…”Gone with the Wind” everyone assumes so because I named my son Rhett
    10. Nickname: My dad and Stepmom call me Brookie (and my little old neighbor too because I couldn’t correct him when we met, it was just too sweet)
    11. I really want to learn more about: Epidemiology
    12. Something from your bucket list: See Niagra Falls in person
    13. Guilty pleasure: Chocolate
    14. I wish I could…Public speak confidently
    15. What are you really good at: I think I’m pretty good at gift giving and cooking
    16. What did you used to be able to do? Weld pretty well
    17. Dream job: world renowned Chef
    18. Something you’re most proud of: My kids
    19. Spare time activity: Reading, camping, boating, hiking, geocaching
    20. Favorite toy as a child: I had a Talkgirl that I thought was pretty cool
    21. Your least favorite job you’ve ever had: Waitressing/Dish Washing
    22. Something no one would believe about you: I love math
    23. If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be: My inner hippie thought is that the general pursuit of life wouldn’t be focused on greed, wealth, and power, but on generosity, compassion, education, being present, and simplicity. I think if that were the case, most of the other worldly problems would pretty well disappear.
    24. What are you learning right now? So much! Prevention is new to me (I started in January) and I can’t believe all I’ve learned in the past 4 months. Specifically, grant writing is something I knew nothing about before January. I’ve worked on a few since I started and I love that it’s something I’m learning to do.
    25. What could you not live without (besides your family)? Mountains and dogs
