Profile Updated: January 18, 2017
Class Year: 1972
Residing In: Calistoga, CA USA
Spouse/Partner: Dating Gary Kozak since 2009
Occupation: Retail and Caregiver
Children: Four beautiful Godchildren! Two boys and two girls that are like my nieces and nephews and they treat More…me like their aunt. They are in their 20's and 30's. Their mother Laura has been a good friend that I met while I lived in Montana. Cole, Karla, Miranda and Seneca.

After highschool I went to Montana State University-North for a brief period, taking their nursing program. I wish I would have stuck to it, because it is a field I have always been interested in, but never pursued. Instead, I pursued a career that I was brought up in, bartender, for over thirty years, still kind of a nurse. I worked in Gt. Falls and Shelby for a few years, having a lot of fun with friends here. I moved to the Napa Valley in 1979. I fell in love with the beauty and the mild climate of this incredible place. Also, being in the Bay Area and very near San Francisco and Oakland, CA, there is a big variety of music, which has been one of my passions forever. There is nothing better than going to see a live performance whether it is jazz, rock, blues,classical or a play. There are a lot of incredible small venues in The Napa Valley. I have settled in Calistoga the last 20 years after living in Napa and St. Helena. I am very happy that my sister, Sandy, lives in the city of Napa and my mother, Eva Campanian, lives right down the street from me in Calistoga. It is a lively little town of 5400 that people travel to from all over the world. Not only known for its delicious wine, warm climate and famous mineral hot springs, but its' parades, concerts in the park and hospitality make it a distinctive destination.

School Story:

I am glad I graduated from a small highschool. It is nice to touch base with old friends when I am visiting Montana. NTCHS was a great school and I always loved going to the basketball and football games, as did everybody else. The school spirit was GREAT!

The Mustard is coming up in The Napa Valley especially after all of the rain we have been having. So beautiful. This was one of my first photos to exhibit in the annual Mustard Photo contest. Unfortunately we do not have the contest anymore. It was so much fun and got your creative juices flowing. I received an honorable mention ribbon for this one and I Sold it!
