Profile Updated: June 21, 2015
Residing In: Ames, IA USA
Spouse/Partner: Engaged to my high school boyfriend Todd Egeland this last Christmas!
Children: I have one daughter Sara who is 26.
Occupation / Where you work:

I currently am doing independent field care manager (contract work) for Humana at Home. I am a Licensed Social Worker and Certified Case Manager.


I have two cats and a dog......I never thought I would like cats....but a friend gave me her cat and I got another cat...for my cat. The dog is a husky mix that my daughter got from the rescue pound. It was suppose to be a 50/50 custody arrangement.....however so far I have the dog full time. Did I mention the dog refuses to potty in the yard so I must walk her numerous times daily in all sorts of weather....ugh!


Not yet but hopefully someday!

Update us on your life since graduation:

I moved back to Ames in July soon to be 6 years ago. I had been in the Minneapolis Minnesota area for 23 years. I came back to Ames as my mother is still living here and there is no one left in my family to care for her or help her when she needs it. My father, brother, and sister have all passed away. It's weird being back but I'm getting adjusted to it!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Um, just about anything! I like to keep busy. I like to go to new places and try new things. I like sports and comedy and theater and movies and eating out and walking around Ada Hayden. You know, the normal stuff.

Do you still see/talk to/hang out with any classmates? Who?

I see Cassie Anderson and Jana Tschop. Face Book has been a great way to keep in contact with people.
I ran into Todd at Wal Mart two years after I had been back living here. We started talking and then as they say "the rest is history."

Favorite high school memory:

High School and College were a blast for me! The best years of my life! No one special memory, just lots of fun all around ;)

Share an interesting adventure, accomplishment or place you visited:

Well, let's see.....I've been to Mexico, Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic as well as most states. I've been on a cruise. I plan to go to Europe someday. I love working in the health care/medical field and have my whole career.

How often do you get back to Ames? Do you still have family there?

I live here full time now.

Future dreams or ambitions:

I liked living in the Minneapolis area. There is so much to do there and a lot of career opportunities. I had a good job there with Blue Cross. I miss it all some but also don't mind the quieter life back here in Iowa. Who knows what the future holds or where I may end up someday. I like to travel and will probably follow my daughter if she has kids so I can be an active grandma!
