How did you join the Kibler & Kirch design family?
In 1990, I was working with one of the original founders of K&K in Red Lodge. She was excited about a new venture that was to be Kibler & Kirch, but since the original gals had full time jobs they didn’t know how they were going to manage the store seven days a week. I said I’d work a couple Sundays a month if they needed me too. That was 25 years ago! When I retired from my full-time job five years ago, I asked Erica and Rosina if I might be able to work more. Now I do and I get to meet new people from all the world! The rest of the week, my husband Jim and I tend to the flock of sheep and our chickens, garden, play with our two grown daughters, son-in-laws, grandsons and grand-dogs. Life is good!

If you were a piece of furniture what would you be?
I would be a nice swivel rocker with a down back pillow. After a long day of work or play its owner could come in, relax and read good book. I have a chair like this from K&K and love it for that exact reason.

What do you own that you would never get rid of? 
My sheep wagon!

What is your favorite design style?
Out with the new and in with the old.
