What makes Eliters special?

Eliters is a family. I have truly enjoyed being a part of an extended family in Eliters. The players here support each other and comfort each other in our time of need.


What games do you play? Are there any other games you would like to try?

I enjoy Spades, Euchre, Pinochle and Hearts. I would like to learn backgammon which I have played a little. I would like to play Cribbage - I have played a little but still haven't really learned all there is to know. I am always open for new things and hopefully will get around to trying all the leagues.


What is your absolute favorite game - and who taught you to play?

Spades and 42, which is a domino game similar to spades but with dominos. My parents taught me to play as a kid.


Do you currently hold any position in Eliters? Is there any particular position you would be interested in?

I am a Pinoy SrTD/AGL/SFTD I am happy where I am for now. I enjoy being a part of such a great team here in pinoy.


What is your proudest achievement in life?

My children - if it is the only thing I do right in life I hope my children to grow up to be respectable successful adults


What is the most important thing for you in tournament play?

Sportsmanship!


If you could offer one suggestion to improve Eliters, what would it be?

I would have to say I can't think of anything at the moment. The awesome staff here is constantly finding more improvements for Eliters to continue to be the Elite site for online gaming.


What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player, online or at a live event?

My most memorable time was when I had set a personal goal to break the record for tourney in a week in Euchp. I hosted 114 tourneys that week with the support of my friends. I set the record and also won TD of the month in Pogo. I was so shocked and honored. I never imagined I would win it!

It was especially great to be the first in Pogo to ever win it. I was truly speechless.


If you had one wish what would it be?

To have my son Ryan with us.


If you could only use one sentence to describe the way you feel about Eliters, to a prospective new player, what would it be?

If you're looking for a competitive, friendly, family oriented place to play, Eliters is the elite of the elite online tourney leagues.


What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters?

I try to make each day fun, I really can't think of one thing in particular that would be funny to share.


If you could be one person for a day, who would you be and why?

Myself as a kid - to enjoy how simple and good life was with no worries.


You are given five minutes to evacuate your house, the kids and pets are safe - which three items would you grab?

My Son Ryan's keepsake box, Family Bible, My computer


Name your three favorite movies:

Steel Magnolias, The Green Mile, Stepmom, The Ultimate Gift


Do you have any particular heros?

My mom - she is my rock! And the Texas Childrens NICU doctors, without them I wouldn't have my boys.


How do you pass the time on your drive to and from work?

I am a stay at home mom, but when running errands, I chat on the phone or listen to the radio.


What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Playing online, I feel guilty sometimes and think I should spend more time with my kids.


When I grow up I want to be just like:

My mom! I hope that I can be the kind of mom and role model for my kids that she was for me.


Any last words for our readers?

Life is so uncertain - Live each day as though it could possibly be your last. Those we love are always taken from us so suddenly. Always taken a moment to tell those you love just how much you love them, and cherish the moments you have together.
