William S., from North Carolina
I am a retired architect. Fresh seafood year-round is my weakness and warm weather is a blessing. I do architectural work as a charity to local churches. Doing surveys keeps me up-to-date on modern day life.
Evia H., from Louisiana
I am retired from the Postal Service after 30 years of service. I am widowed with two grown children. My youngest passed away in 2009. I am blessed beyond measure to have a wonderful family who I can travel with to all parts of the world. I live an adventurous life and enjoy different cultures and experiences.
Carole M., from Massachusetts
I am a Registered Nurse who has worked as an Emergency Room Nurse for almost 40 years. It has been a wonderful career filled with many tears, stressful times, and happy moments. My focus now is to travel with my husband of 33 years. Keep your family close and enjoy life. Love deep.
Robert L., from Texas
I am a lovable, retired Army Vet living on my ranch here in Texas, still in love with my wife, my cows, my goats, and my country, in that order. I must say I enjoy reading about all the remarkable people here at Springboard America. What a marvelous community.
Janie E., from Texas
I'm a stay-at-home mom married to a great guy for 41 years. We have three dogs named Angel, Pookie, and Buddy. I'm a caregiver for my mom who broke her shoulder two years ago. I love to dance, solve logic problems, play with my dogs, watch movies and TV, and sing. Oh, and I'm 4'9" short!
Ann I., from Illinois
I am a mom of one, a grandmother of five, and a great-grandmother of three. I love to garden, read, sew, and play heavy metal on my Ibanez bass guitar. My husband says he owns "The Redneck Toolbox" which consists of duct tape and WD-40. If it doesn't move, WD-40 it. If it moves and isn't supposed to, duct tape it.
Dennis C., from Florida
I am a disabled Marine who has a lot of time to think about what is important in life. If everyone would respect other people, no matter who they are, this world would be a better place.
Michelle D., from New JerseyI am very family-oriented. Nothing is more important to me than my family. I have a strong passion for reading (from Shakespeare to James Patterson) and watching classic movies. Seeing the world through another's vision is a great escape.
Erika F., from Florida
Life is a beautiful, terrifying ride. I lost my father when I was 10 to cancer and lost my husband 19 years later to cancer as well. Six years later love found me and I got to adopt three kids! I always try to keep a positive attitude as you never know what's around the corner. Always skip to your own drum to face it.
Dorothy S., from Michigan
I am an animal lover and would adopt every animal out there, but beware as I would prosecute anyone that harmed one. Other than that I am aloof, fun, and very up-to-date, not old-fashioned at all. I have many friends and like to go out and kick up a rug now and then. I welcome all who would like to be friends.
Cindy V., from Florida
I love the Lord. My husband and I have been married for three and a half years. During that time he has had open heart surgery. A year later he was in an accident that put him in the hospital for six weeks. It is a miracle that he is alive. I live by the saying "Age is a number, old is a state of mind".
Stephanie H., from Alabama
I have overcome two house fires and a tornado - if that doesn't make you a stronger person, then nothing will. My family comes first and I would do anything for them. Live today like it's your last because you never know what tomorrow can bring.
Patricia S., from Virginia
I am a homemaker who also works part-time. I love to do crafts, gardening, and cooking. I love making new friends and helping wherever I can. I have never met a person that I couldn't call a friend.
Shawna C., from Florida
I consider myself to be someone who is creative and imaginative. I enjoy developing new approaches to solve problems. I am careful not to always push for the new way and to learn how others have been successful before me.
Jean E., from ColoradoLife is good over here. I'm learning to be grateful for what I have. Mostly, I enjoy spending time with the great people in my life, including seven grandkids. When I'm not reading, biking, or creating with fibers, I love taking surveys. Such a great outlet for a nerdy introvert!
