About Us

Our Story

We met 29 years ago during summer school at the University of Montana. We knew right away we were meant for each other--yes it was love at first sight! We were engaged in two months and got married the following summer in a beautiful Catholic Church in Missoula, Montana. We attended Pharmacy School together at the University of Montana. After graduation, we moved to sunny Arizona and that has been our home ever since. We have both been pharmacists for 22 years. We live in Sierra Vista which is a small, friendly, family-oriented city in southern Arizona. We live in a large ranch-style home with a huge, fenced backyard for family fun. We have 8 children in our family and are so proud that each one has his/her own unique skills, talents, and personality. Our children are Jodine (25), Shawndra (22), Anaka (19), Kailla (16), Molly (12), Shanel(10), Trevor (7), and Aaron(5). We love our large family and feel very blessed! We believe life is a Gift and children are a Gift. We are anxious to open our hearts and home to our new family member!

Our family loves outdoor activities including sports, hiking, and exploring Arizona. We also enjoy movies, picnics, and family gatherings.

Our Home
