||". I am a mother of 6, grandmother of 10 and after my family comes my love of animals, scuba diving, and crafts (of all kinds). I have been an EMT, substitute teacher, cub scout, boy scout, brownie and Girl scout leader. I had to be fair, if a leader for one child, then I needed to do for all. Also, OM (Olympics of the Mind) mentor. Professionally, I fell into accounting and worked my way up the ladder to the "Good Ole Boys Club" as Controller (after going to night school for 15+ years). Now that I'm semi-retired and have an acre of land, I rescue animals (guess volunteering at an animal shelter was my calling): 4 pgymy goats, 4 Navajo lambs, 4 Americauna chickens, 4 rabbits, 5 dogs, 6 cats, 2 feral cats, 2 cockateils, 2 conures, 2 zebra finches, 2 red ear turtles, 2 aquariums (20 gal & 150 gal) and one bearded dragon. Who turns in a turtle or bird or ANY animal for that matter. ALL RESCUES! Once at my home they are part of my family.
