all completed some level of higher education. In fact, my great-great- grandfather was the dean of a junior college in Sweden. You could say the bar was set high for my siblings and me before we were even born. My Parents Are My Role Models

My mom is data-driven, and she is the most organized person I know. Her job is perfect for the level of organization she lives by, which is why she has been so successful in her field. When I was growing up, she always told me that there is a place for everything and everything has its place.

My parents have always modeled a loving, healthy relationship for my siblings and me.

On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, my dad follows his gut. He can function in a world where things are slightly messy. As you can imagine, my parents drive each other crazy sometimes. However, both of my parents are successful in their methods, and they balance each other out beautifully. When I think about my own work style, I have to laugh. I inherited attributes from both of my parents, but if you asked either of them independently, each would tell you I’m exactly like the other. My dad has been working in the dry cleaning industry since before he could even drive, and he is the hardest-working person I know. No matter what he’s doing, whether he’s at home or at work, he puts everything he has into the task at hand. He’s always been that way. My dad is also the best technical dry cleaner I have ever met; he probably has forgotten more this afternoon than most people will ever know. My parents have been married since 1981. They truly love each other, and they’ve modeled for me for as long as I can remember what it means to be a good spouse and parent. I am truly thankful for everything they have done for me and for the example they continue to set.

My parents met at Western Michigan University. They didn’t start dating until after graduation. A few years after getting married, they had me, followed by my brother and sister (who are fraternal twins). My parents aren’t retired yet, but they do spend their free time during the summers golfing and water skiing. Meanwhile, in the winter, they love to go snow skiing. My maternal grandmother actually lives with my parents, so she gets to see her great-granddaughters a lot more often than when she lived on her own. My parents have always modeled a loving, healthy relationship for my siblings and me. As I’ve became an adult myself, I realized they couldn’t be more different. My mom is the controller at a large fire-suppression company. The company she works for creates and installs large sprinkler systems for manufacturing plants and more sophisticated systems for the computer rooms of companies of all types.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
