Because I like making lists:

1. Dottie Bruestle
2. Ken Bruestle
3. Gary Bruestle
4. Emily Taege
5. Lesa Christiancy
6. Amanda Schnakenberg
7. Vonna Castiglione (Jones)
8. Dan Geary
9. Bob Killingstad
10. Andrea Otanez
11. Reed Rankin
12. Alex Fry
13. Jessica Escott
14. Tyler Samson

My favorites are my family, friends and mentors who I love, admire and/or to whom I am thoroughly grateful. I’m only 24, so this list is far from finished. The 14 above are listed in the order I met them.

P.S. My mom, dad and sister are not on the list because they are obvious.
