They say a person is the product of her life experiences.
Sharleen Scott has picked fruit, worked in fruit stands, hoed weeds at a Christmas tree farm, and though she is not a shrub, grew up in a wholesale plant nursery. She worked as a newspaper copy courier and enjoyed a twenty-three year career as a travel agent until the day the world changed on September 11. She’s a corporate vice president in the family business and a rural mail carrier. She’s a wife and mom.
She experienced the Mount St. Helens eruption, wore a dust mask for days after, and still finds ash in her flowerbeds. She rode out a tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico on a cruise ship while in the grip of appendicitis. She watched Alzheimer’s disease steal the mind of a loved one, bit by bit.
What has her life journey made her?
