I have been married to Craig since
December of 1989. We met on a blind date in college. I wanted to back
out of it, but my mom said ďjust go to the dance, you donít have to
marry the guy!Ē Famous last words!! Well I didnít marry my blind date,
but I married my friendís blind date. BTW, Craig wanted to back out at
the last minute too. We often had the ďis it fate or is it chance?Ē
Craig has a Masterís in Engineering. He has worked as an environmental
engineer, process engineer and most recently quality engineer. Recently
his work was patented!
We have two children. Andrew was
born in May of 1992. Mary was born in February of 1995. Both of
our children are very involved in music. In fact, there are six
instruments in our home.
Andrew plays the viola in the Reading Symphony Youth Orchestra. He also
plays the trumpet and drums. Andrew is an avid reader and also likes
creative writing. In high school he will be taking all the honors
courses offered, as well as an extra science course Ė accelerated
biology. He is fascinated by reptiles, especially his snake. He also
enjoys playing tennis and lacrosse.
Mary plays the violin in the Reading Symphony Junior String Orchestra.
She also plays the flute and likes to play around on the piano. She
likes to read and write stories. She is an alter server at St.
Catharineís. This summer she is participating in a theatre camp at
Albright College. In school her favorite subject is science and she
loves to play soccer and tennis.
||We have several petsÖan English Springer
Spaniel, a vicious hamster, a fish, and an Eastern King Snake (who made
an escape and luckily was found the same day). Mary is trying to
research turtles because she would like to have a turtle (since I said
no to a cat).
||I completed my Bachelorís of Science in
psychology at Mt. St. Maryís College in December of 1989. Recently, I
finished my Masterís of Education degree at Alvernia College where I was
a Graduate Assistant. Currently, I am enrolled in the Reading Hospital
School of Nursing.
The joke is that Iím a professional student
(I just spent 2 Ĺ years on my Masterís degree and now will spend the
next 2 years in school to be a Registered Nurse). Seriously, I am an
International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and have been in
private practice since 1999. I work with breastfeeding moms and
babies in local pediatricianís offices. I love being a lactation
consultant. A nursing degree will allow me to work as a lactation
consultant in the hospital setting, as well as provide me with other

|In the senior yearbook Heather listed
"Child Psychology" as the career she desired after graduation.

|Here's an amazing coincidence for you.
Before the Cathy (Ketcher) Rowley and her family built their new house
in Pathfinder Woods in Exeter in 2004, they were trying to decide which
model to chose. A friend of theirs arranged for them to go through
one of the existing houses in the development. The house belonged
to none other than Heather Hill! The Rowley's new home is just two
blocks away from Heather's.
Heather's husband Craig plays soccer and
has run into Lee Pace on occasion.
Heather was in the same graduate class as
Debbie (Lojec) Hummel at Alvernia.

Heather Hill, a sophomore, has decided to be one
who does something about a problem. The problem, in this case, is
drinking and driving. An article in Seventeen made Heather aware of the
problem. No one she knows was hurt or killed by a drunk driver, and she
wants to keep it that way. Heather feels that people should realize that
accidents donít always happen to someone else - next time it could be
you. Heather needs people to join and to help. She stresses the fact
that the club is against drinking and driving, not drinking.
So far, the members of SADD include Heather,
Kelly Carter, and

driving is the leading killer of teenagers.

Pennsylvania Science and Humanities Symposium
95 students from all over the state participated in a
Pennsylvania Junior Science and Humanities Symposium held at Penn State
University. I represented Mt. Penn at this symposium.
For three days I listened to lectures on various
science and humanity related subjects, visited labs, and toured the
Some of the professorsí speech topics were research in
science and math, the impact of science on society, Olympics and
political intervention, and art sculpture using the computer, to name
just a few.
Students had the opportunity to tour two of the college
labs. Some of the labs included astronomy, biological science,
agriculture, chemistry, and physics.
Seven students presented research papers on anything
from medical technology to computer science.
This symposium was a memorable experience. I learned
about Penn State itself, I met professors and had a chance to talk to
them, and I learned more about various subjects in science and

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT CENTER
This summer, through
scholarship, I attended the 1985 Youth Leadership Development Center at
Ursinus College. It is hard to put into words how I felt that week, all
I can say is that it was one of the best and most memorable experiences
in my life. I learned a lot while having a good time. Not only did I
learn about leadership, I learned about myself and others.
Everyone participated in the class "Leadership and
Personal Style", then chose the other five classes which either had to
do with leadership or the Red Cross. The classes were during the day
with free time and recreation in between. There were social activities
such as a talent show, a hug-a-thon, skits, a volleyball tournament, and
a dance. Every day was finished by discussing in small groups, the day's
Through this center many friendships were made, for
there was a tear in each person's eye as everyone left. As I said
before, this was a great experience; I' recommend this program to anyone
who is interested in bettering their leadership skills.
