Tell us about your pets.
I’m currently pet-less, but I’ll eventually get another cat. Dogs are too much work.

Kayla: I have a one year old cat named Oreo.

Cheryl: Growing up we had a collie named Brownie. Sweet and beautiful dog.

Tell us about your family/loved-ones.
I have an older brother and an older sister. My parents are the greatest parents of all time and obviously know how to raise a great kid. I’ve been with my beautiful girlfriend Lauren for almost seven years now.

Sandra: I have been Married to Bobby for 30 years. We have one Daughter Kiersten.  I have a twin sister and one brother a year older.

Kayla: I have the best parents who blessed me with two younger sisters. I have been married to my amazing husband Donnie for a little over one year.

Cheryl: I have 4 great kids and 5 best ever grand-kids. I have 5 wonderful siblings and my sweet 88 year old dad.

If you could be anywhere in the world doing whatever you wanted, where and what would that be?
 I would be in Fiji participating in season 36 of Survivor. Survivor has been my favorite show since the first season aired over 17 years ago. I’m guaranteeing a win when I get on the show in the next few seasons.
Sandra: Any beach sitting in a chair drinking my drink watching the ocean waves with my family
Kayla: I would be relaxing on the beach with my husband or back home in Indiana spending time with family and friends.
Cheryl: I have been to a lot of places but sitting by a lake in Minnesota in the Spring… there is nothing better. 

If your house was on fire and you could grab one thing (assuming living things were out) what would you grab?
My lucky hat that I was wearing the night the Cubs won the World Series.
Sandra: Pictures
Kayla: My laptop because it stores all of my pictures that I would never want to lose.
Cheryl: Pictures… you cannot replace those memories.

Who do you admire most in life?
My parents for all the hard work of putting up with me and my siblings all these years.

Sandra: My mom
Kayla: My parents because they have done so much for me and my sisters. I could always count on them to be there for me and I would not be where I am today if it were not for them.

Cheryl: My dad. He worked hard and still does. He’s honest, likes to laugh and have fun but most of all he instilled a walk with God in us kids.

How would your friend’s describe you?
Cocky, dramatic, and obnoxious are just a few words my friends and coworkers have used lately…
Kayla: Helpful, fun, laid-back, caring and organized.
Cheryl: Feisty, a little out spoken maybe and I like to yank people’s chains after I get to know them of course.                                         

What’s your proudest moment in this industry?
I’m pretty excited about recently passing my second CIC class. Those tests may be harder than anything I ever did in college.
Kayla: I have not been here for very long but I would have to say getting positive feedback about my work and becoming a member of the American Marketing Association.
Cheryl: I would have to say that since I don’t deal directly with our clients insurance, if I can be a part of what they need at the point of contact – that is a proud moment to me.

Other than spending time with family and friends, what do you like to do in your free time?
I’m almost always watching some kind of sport, especially Oklahoma State, the Cubs and the Celtics. I like playing cards or video games with friends and I love going to see movies at the Warren.

Sandra: Be outside
Kayla: I like to watch or play sports, play cards or board games, go to the movies or watch one at home, go shopping, take pictures, play on Pinterest and be creative.
Cheryl: I like to sit on my deck in the evening with an ice coffee and just enjoy God’s creation.
