Comments:

My life has been rewarding with challenges and I would not change a thing. My travels throughout the United States and in other countries have given the best education along with my fun memories of all my classmates at South High and Westminster College.

My college years took a back seat to raising my two beautiful daughters, working full time and finally getting my degree in Business Management at Westminster College in 1992. I graduated one year before Angie, my oldest daughter.

My first real career was in the Healthcare Industry where I enrolled Senior citizens and low income families into the first HMO in Utah, formerly, Family Health Plan, later FHP. It was one of the most rewarding experiences I had helping people get on a program that encouraged preventive healthcare. What a novel idea, back in 1976 though 1987. I started by meeting people door-to-door canvassing and gradually moved into management roles.

With the skills I learned at FHP, I needed a greater challenge and while in my program at Westminster, I became a Financial Planner at IDS, an American Express Financial Planning firm in Midvale, UT.

After a few years there I moved to investment manager roles at First Security Investments.

In 1994, I moved to CA where I found love and my current career as a Senior Financial Advisor at Wells Fargo Advisors, in the Wealth Management Group. I love working with people and helping them make smart choices with their financial resources.

I met Phil in 1995 on a ferry going to San Francisco from the East Bay. We had chance meetings two days in a row on the same ferry while I was showing my sister from MN around the San Francisco Bay. We are meant to be! We have been together ever since. Phil makes me laugh and keeps me smiling.

We have traveled to Greece, Italy, Spain, France and much of the United States and Virgin Islands. I have also been to England, Ireland, Austria, and Mexico.

My passion is providing scholarships to single parents at Westminster College. I have an endowment with the College and I contribute each year with matching funds from Wells Fargo. I hope to expand my passion to educating single parents throughout the world. That will be my career in retirement.

School Story:

Pep Club for sure! I broke my right ankle on my first trip to Brighton on my first run down the hill, but it did not stop me from marching on a trip to Cedar City. I think I had my walking cast replaced three times. Hee! Hee!

Randy and I hooked up for a moment in time after our 15th year reunion. He was passionate about his business and his adventures. I loved his spirit! He was very nurturing and sweet. Full of romantic surprises. I can reveal this now, Randy. I know you would rather be known for your ruggedness. You were strong and sensitive at the same time. I will always have a piece of you in my heart. May you rest in peace now and forever. Xoxoxo Kathy

I don't remember Chad, but wished I had. Great write up Paul, I felt like I did know him.
