| I was born and raised in what is known as |
"the entertainment capital of the world",
Las Vegas, Nevada.
After graduating from high school I took general studies at Clark County Community College. I continued my studies in computer science at Dixie College in St. George, Utah.
I worked for the Bureau of Reclaimation while still in high school, for the State of Nevada as a secretary, and as a reservations clerk for a number of hotel/casinos. In 1989, I moved to St. George, Utah, and in November 1991, I married my best friend, Dan Farwell, W8EQA.
My husband tutored me into a Extra class ham radio license. I enjoy working countries around the world on single sideband and PSK-31 and am working towards my DXCC award. I would like to become more involved in traffic nets. In May of 2000, I received my vanity call sign W7RRR.
I especially like to operate during Field Day and team up with my husband for big local events like the St. George Marathon which plays host to over 6000 runners annually.
