Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am 47 year old divorced mom of two daughters aged 15 and 10. I think I have done a good job with them. I work on a children's ward in the biggest teaching hospital in Europe. I have been there for 20 years and love it to bits. It's so interesting, different conditions I am learning all the time, it is a very rewarding job.
What other interests or hobbies do you have (other than Eliters of course)?
My primary hobby is water colour painting, people say they are good but I want them to be perfect.
The kids take up a lot of my time; I need to make some time for me. I have to sneak my Eliters time in when they are in bed.
How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?
I found bgy in Lions Lair. There was a TD called Beanie_the_meanie chatting in the lobby, I asked what she was doing. Tha4s when I learned all about Eliters. So I joined and as I was reaching my 100th tourney she asked if I wanted to be a TD. "Who Me?" I said but look where I am today - years later still here, and enjoying it still.
How did you pick your Eliters' Name - does it have any special significance?
There was no imagination in how I selected my id. I wish I had picked a better, more exciting name like some I have seen around.
What makes Eliters special?
Eliters is great for meeting nice caring people. I know a lot of Eliters meet up regularly outside the gaming world. I have met a couple of Eliters, and only wish there were more over here in UK. I am so glad I joined; I am enjoying myself as much now as when I originally joined.
What games do you play? Are there any other games you would like to try?
I play and host in Backgammon yahoo, but I also play Backgammon pogo, Literati, Giny, Ginp, Criby, Cribp, Dominoes yahoo, Dominoes GD, pooly, poolp, Hearty and qwertyp. I would like a lesson in how to play in holdem tourney - bottom line, I just love playing cards.

I feel like a traitor but I love Gin, it was svetlio_d2 another Eliter who taught me how to play. He was very good Teacher, I have managed to beat him a few times.

What is your proudest achievement in life?
Raising two lovely, well-adjusted, caring, kind, and intelligent girls.
What is the most important thing for you in tournament play?
I think the most important thing about playing in tournaments is enjoying and having fun, but I do like to win. There are some good players around and when I am playing itís a challenge, I have had some very exciting matches and I love it.
If you could offer one suggestion to improve Eliters, what would it be?
How to improve Eliters ... that is a hard question - they already doing a fantastic job. I canít think of anything that needs improving.
If you had one wish what would it be?
I wish we could have a giant party that was held over a whole weekend, all Eliters could go to meet up and chat. That would be so cool.

One of my spams for the lobby is,ÜOnly nice people play in Eliters". It really is true.
What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player, online or at a live event?
Being voted player of the month, I couldnít stop smiling.
What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you as a player or TD?
It was embarrassing at the time! I was hosting and getting chatted up in messenger when I answered a personal question in a full lobby. "Who are you talking to?" to everyone wanted to know. Was my face red!

How do you pass the time on your drive to and from work?
I carpool to work, so we chat about the latest gossip at work. Usually there is some scandal to keep us entertained.

My late Dad is my hero - all he ever thought about was his family.

I donít think I could really say here ha ha.
When I grow up I want to be just like:
