Strathearn Park Docent Since 2002
I have lived in Simi Valley since the age of five. I remember the days of undeveloped hills and fields that used to be such a big part of the valleys charm. I took an early interest in history in school and had decided to seek my degree in the subject before leaving high school. In august of 2002 I saw an advertisement in the Simi Valley recorder requesting Docent volunteers at Strathearn Park, and joined the Docent team at the start of the Ghost Tour season
While continuing to work at Strathearn once a month I graduated with my degree in History from Cal State Northridge in 2004. I now work for Farmers Insurance as a commercial lines underwriter. While this profession is not ideal for a history lover, it does allow me to continue my true love serving my Lord Jesus Christ with the bus route and children of her church, Calvary Baptist in Simi.
It is really the stories about people that I love most; rather than the dates and facts. It is the stories about the people who once called my home town their home as well. Who were born, grew up, lived, loved, cried, rejoiced, and passed out of this world in this valley.
