I am married with two girls, who are six and three. My oldest goes to Pleasant Lea Elementary - where I went to school. Itís very odd walking the halls. Everything seems so much smaller, but things havenít drastically changed. She wants to "always be a tiger", which is what I did - Pleasant Lea, Pleasant Lea Junior High, Lees Summit High School and then MU. My husband and I met through mutual friends, and were very good friends for over a year before we started dating. He went to KU and I went to MU which makes watching college sports interesting. He also works in a female dominant industry, and I work in a male dominant industry, which is also interesting. We get the best gifts for each other because of input from our coworkers, and get plenty of feedback at work on each otherís viewpoints and perspective, especially when we argue about something. It makes it difficult (if not impossible) to NOT see the other side. I have worked for the same organization for 15 years, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. I started there the day I took my last college final. I worked on a technical help desk for a short stint, was a computer programmer for many years, an IT architect for a few more after that, made the transition into management, and am now the Assistant Vice President over the developers, architects and managers. I also continue doing architectural work as well, which I very much enjoy. It takes me to DC, and other cities around the US. I didnít grow up traveling, so being exposed to other cities through my work travels has been a nice experience. I am no longer afraid to go to New York and DC, but my first few trips were very scary. My only points of reference were bad (and inaccurate) movie depictions, so I honestly thought I might not live through it. I live in Lee's Summit, and love seeing the people from High School, who I run into frequently. I see many of the people in our class at events for our children - at the girl's schools, parks, swimming pools, church, gymnastics, dance class and soccer games. Itís nice to see familiar faces, catch up on what people have been doing, and especially fun to see how people have changed (and how theyíve stayed the same).
