Tell your neighbors a bit of your story. What makes you “you?” I moved here from Cheyenne, Wyoming with my family when I was nine. I attended Ferndale Schools and left home for a few years to travel and enjoy my youth. I came back and am raising my family in Ferndale where it all began. Our town and surrounding areas bring so many opportunities and I chose a great job at Terry Stach State Farm, where I continue to grow and enjoy what this county has to offer.
How long have you been a Ferndale neighbor? About 24 years in Ferndale and 32 in Whatcom County.
Best Ferndale landmark? My favorite Ferndale landmarks are Cedars, the Metallica Bridge and Pioneer Park but my alt-time favorite spot is my big grassy back yard!
What is your favorite memory from your time in Ferndale? One of my favorite memories includes a porta-potty on the top of the FHS Gymnasium but we won’t get into that! I have wonderful memories of working with friends at 2nd Ave Sports – my friend Emily’s business. I am excited about the future of this town as it is always growing. I love meeting new people who choose to call this place home.
Who should we meet next? Molly Gandy
