Why do you choose to volunteer with Hospice of the Red River Valley?
I decided to volunteer with Hospice of the Red River Valley because both my mother-in-law and my mother were on Hospice, and I was so appreciative of the wonderful care they received that I wanted to help families in the same way.

What are your hobbies?
In my spare time I love to golf, play Maj Jongg and sing.

What’s the most exotic place you’ve visited?
The most exotic place I’ve visited is the Panama Canal. The scenery is so beautiful, and it is such an amazing engineering feat.
