Did you live in Bluffton all of your life? When did you graduate from BHS? Did you go to Bluffton college or somewhere else? Did you and your sister go to the same place or deliberately separate at that point?

I know you're from Livonia, MI. That's a much different city than Bluffton, isn't it? Tell me about your childhood, growing up "up north", etc. What kind of kid were you?

"Up north," that's Traverse City or Marquette, to me! Livonia is the suburbs, but I had a passion for horses and was lucky to ride English for six years through the Girl Scouts.

Share some of your memories from growing up in Bluffton...school, teachers, friends, silly stories, serious stories, music, sports, etc.

Well, early on I have a lot of memories of living close to the elementary school. I remember watching my siblings going to and from school, then walking there myself when I started kindergarten, and eating lunch at home.

When did you first move to Bluffton? Why?

I moved to Bluffton when I was 11 years old with my family. Dad had bought what used to be Gratz's Shoe Store. We lived in Swanton, Ohio, prior to that. [As an aside, underneath one of the windows in what used to be Bazzy's Shoes is one of those old machines that would X-ray your foot.]

When did you graduate from BHS?
