First 16 years of life were at Mannville Alberta, a farming community, a public school and small SDA churches every 20-30 miles. CUC was my first-home away from home.

After HS graduation my first plane ride was to Chicago to begin post secondary school at Andrews University, majoring in music and pre-med. During that year I met fellow Canadian, Arni Skoretz. We moved back to Canada, married the summer of ‘70. Transferred to the U of A. Second semester was enrolled again at CUC, taking another graduation. From there we continued our education at PUC. It was there that another lifetime career of motherhood began. In ‘73 back In Canada, living in Vancouver, Medicine Hat, Peace River, Grande Cache, Drumheller, Kitchener Waterloo, and Red Deer, which has been our home since 1984. In 1986 I started a career in financial planning and have built a very strong tailored business, AEI Wealth Management, with clientele in most provinces of Canada.
