Where did you go to college?
Seattle Pacific University
What is your favorite memory?
There are just way to many! However, several events stand out such as the all school MUSICALS “ROCK ON THE HEAD”, and “COOL IN THE FURNANCE”. Cheerleading, Yearbook, High School Socials, and National Piano Competition in New York. I remember playing Volleyball in the ole’ fashion circle rotation and serving in the square while wearing gaucho pants with the zipper in the back! Running Cross Country and winning my first meet at Franklin (to never run again!) Multiple friendships and lots of laughter!
How did WSCS prepare you for your future?
It helped me in preparation for college in how to write papers, how to do research and public speaking! I remember giving Mrs. Delk a 30 minute speech in the hallway on why I did not need to take Public Speaking. To which she replied, ” I think you will do just fine”. Even though we were a small school, we had lots of responsibilities in planning and organizing events and mentoring younger classmate or children. I have used those skills now to organize and put on many events in my adult life.
What do you appreciate about Riverside Christian now that you have graduated?
I loved the one-on-one attention and that the teachers and adult mentors really invested in our lives. Christ was centered in all that we did and having that foundation and support has given me such a blessed life. It has helped in my decision making and has given me assurance that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I am also blessed to have all three of my children graduate from Riverside Christian!
What are you doing now? Family? Career?
I currently work at Memorial Cornerstone Medicine with Signal Health of Washington based out of Yakima. I am a Registered Nurse, BSN ,Patient Care Coordinator. I work with hundreds of patients throughout the valley helping them navigate with their healthcare needs. I have been married for 28 years to a wonderful man, Sean Byrne.
