Ann, our younger daughter, is a bicentennial child with a innate interest in music and dance. She found a way to satisfy this talent at age 7 with the study of Ballet for 10 years, as well as Tap, Jazz and Modern dance classes for shorter intervals. As a Jr. at Renton High School, her interest turned to the Cheer Leader Squad, occupying most of her extracurricular time.

Graduating Renton High in 1994, she has studied Business and Marketing at nearby Green River Community College. Sharing an apartment in Renton with a close girlfriend, Rado Blood, from High School, she now is working full time in sales at SouthCenter Sears. She is being considered for their management training program..

Ann made a career change this year to become "Director of First Impressions" for Dynamic Computing Systems in Kent, Washington. She was ready for a change from retail work and this new job offers much opportunity for growth and learning within a very busy and growing company. She is so pleased with this change. She and boyfriend of several years, Matt, share a duplex apartment, often go camping with friends on weekends and lead busy lives. Matt and Rick and "good buds" and went to a LPGA tournament together last year.

Ann & Matt Strickland were married in a beautiful outdoor wedding at Kent. It was a beautiful, sunny day and was a little cooler by 7 pm when the wedding began.

Ann and Matt have a new home in East Kent. Ann continues to work for DCS but is now their Office Administrator. Matt manages a warehouse inventory for a new company. We do see them from time to time, but they are a very busy couple.
