I was born in Oceanside, CA, but raised in Indiana. I started working at 16 to keep the lights on at home. I delivered newspapers 7 days a week and worked in a restaurant while going to Bloomington High School South in Bloomington, IN. After high school, I moved with my family to Arizona. I later enlisted in the United States Air Force and served as a Russian Linguist. I married James Clifton Heatly Jr at 24 and sadly, seven months later was a widow. I returned to Arizona, where I met my current husband, Randall R Jahn. We’ve been married for over 30 years. We have two beautiful daughters, Cassandra and Lauren. I’ve been a full- time mom, a part time theater technician, and a business owner. I am not affiliated with any religious or political organizations. I believe in personal and civic responsibility.
