How do I see
where the heart is…
I loved growing up in Redding. As a kid, I would set up Kool-Aid stands in my neighborhood to make money and then ride my bike to the Circle K on Hartnell that used to have an arcade inside of it. If I was lucky, I would make my way all the way to the mall to the Gold Mine arcade they used to have inside. Although I don’t get to ride my bike or play video games as much, I definitely still have the Kool-Aid stand, but it has changed a little since those days and now is a digital marketing agency called SocialxBusiness.
After graduating from Enterprise High School, I went on to attend Shasta College and eventually earned a master’s degree in business management from University of Phoenix. I stayed in Redding through all these years because this is where my family lives, and now this is where my kids go to school and live. I honestly wouldn’t want to call anywhere else my home. Some of my favorite things about Redding are the location, the mountains and the sunsets. I feel blessed to not only live close to my family, but to also live in an area that is surrounded by beauty.
Home is definitely where the heart is, but for me it is where my mom, dad, sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins live, too!
