All About Me.......
OK...not all, but how much do you really want to know?
Introduction: Hi! My name is Gretchen and I was born and raised in a small
town in Illinois. My hobbies include music,
bike riding, and playing with Katie, Kirstie,
and Quest. I collect Coca-Cola memorabilia and
Legos. My favorite color is green and my favorite food is anything
|Education: I graduated from Sullivan High School in 1991. I then attended Millikin University where I received my B.S. in music
business in 1995. I studied both piano and percussion, but spent most of my time studying
digital recording techniques and MIDI instrumentation.|
|Family: I married Doug in 1993 and we have
two daughters, Katelynn and Kirstynn. We also have a very cool pug
named Quest who is 7 years old. We like to take
bike rides and long walks. |
|Work: When I first graduated from college, I worked as a producer at three radio
stations, WDZQ, WZNX, and Y103.
I did a lot of on-air work at all three stations including a popular morning show, but I
spent the majority of my time in the studio digitally producing commercials on the
After Katie was born, I got out of the radio business to work
with computers. I worked as an independent contractor for ValCom Learning Center where I traveled to various
locations and taught many different computer applications. I left there after 18
months to stay home with Katie. I still do some freelance work from time to time.
Currently, I am teaching band and substitute teaching at Maranatha
|Other: In my spare time I can be found playing drums for the Powerhouse Youth Group at Maranatha Assembly of God, or relaxing at
home playing on my computer, of course. Sometimes I work as a stand-in
local bands but I am not tied down to any groups at the present time. However,
should Amy Grant's manager call, I am packed and ready
to tour!! |
When I am really bored, you can find me hanging out on
AIM (DrumGirl313) sending messages to people I have never even met. My husband says someday
he will find me chopped into little pieces next to my laptop as a result of some psycho I
chatted with on the internet. Any volunteers?
