I am a fun-loving woman with a dynamic personality and a passion for good manners, civility, common courtesy and proper etiquette. I credit my sixth-grade teacher, for my enthusiasm for good manners and social skills. 
 
My experience in working with children goes beyond raising and my own five children and homeschooling for five years.  I taught all divisions of Sabbath school for nearly eight years, served as Director of Vacation Bible School for two years, and taught the youth division for five. I volunteered at the Greeley Boys and Girls Club assisting in coaching football, baseball, and basketball. There I also taught modern dance and crochet to the kids.  Most recently I volunteered for Goodwill Youth Training Program conducting mock interviews and doing portfolio reviews with high school students.
 
Originally from El Paso Texas, I have resided in Colorado since 1985.  I have a family of five adult children; three boys, twin girls, two daughters-in-law, one son-in-law, and five beautiful grandchildren. I also now have two additional sons and a new daughter-in-law, making 18 of us in my immediate family!

Thomas Cooper

Thomas Cooper

Director of Photography for ROX Lifestyle Magazine

Thomas Cooper’s images are diverse, poignant and unforgettable. A professional photojournalist with over 30 years of experience, photography is Tom’s career, adventure, passion and contribution. Tom’s professional experience extends beyond his commercial work; through his art, he is on a quest to preserve precious parts of the world that are fast disappearing. His eye for composition and his drive to capture the whole story have led him to photograph, from start to finish, such unforgettable news events as Columbine and the Hayman Fire.

Tom immerses himself in each assignment so that he can see the world through the eyes of his subjects, and then convey that unique vision to print. He has an instinctive sense of timing and willingness to push the boundaries in pursuit of the image. The result is a string of awards attesting to his ability to capture news, wildlife, fashion, commercial projects, intimate weddings, and famous people. His photography has propelled him to dive with great white sharks, fly in helicopters over forests-turned-infernos, rove through rain forests, take wing in antique airplanes and sail on multi-million dollar yachts. Tom’s work has been featured in over 30 publications in the U.S., including National Geographic, The New York Times, Sports Illustrated and Time Magazine, as well as numerous international publications.
