What’s the most interesting thing you’ve seen or delivered at Metro?
A bong—it came to us to be delivered to City Hall here in Wichita. However, it wouldn’t go through security and the person it was addressed to refused it, so I took it home (it was actually really pretty) and gave it to my neighbor.

Fun fact about yourself:
I used to do preliminary pageants for Miss America, winning interview, evening gown, and swimsuit competitions, and was in the top 10 at Miss Kansas in 1983. After competing, I was a traveling companion for a local contestant to go to Miss Kansas and served on the board of the pageant as the business manager for the winner.

Go-to midnight snack:
Scariest thing you’ve ever done:
In 1983, I rolled my new Mustang that I’d only had for two weeks quite a few times late at night on a back road driving from Sand Springs to Tulsa, Oklahoma, and landed upside down in a ravine. Luckily, I only had a few scrapes and a lot of bruises, but my Mustang was completely totaled!
Do you have a life motto you live by?
Not really, but I do believe in karma and “‘what goes around, comes around.”
