Timeline of Shealyn's Life

  • Born

    I was born in Novato, CA, to two parents (Bill & Barb). I was born soon after they were married so my parents were young. I was the first grandchild and the first girl on both sides of the family.
  • Nanny

    Both of my parents worked in the city so I had a nanny. My nanny was from Guatemala and taught me some spanish. It helped me a lot through my educational career as I ended up studying spanish for 7 years.
  • PreK

    I went to preschool. It was a private school through the church.
  • Krissy is Born

    When I was 2 1/2 my little sister was born. I was used to being an only child so this was a huge upset to my world. I was very unhappy with my parents at the time and I hated my sister and would be mean to her and act out for attention, but now we are close.
  • Kindergarten

    I began public kindergarten. Their were so many young kids where I lived the elementary schools were very crowded so kindergarten was only half day. My nanny would pick me up after kindergarten.
  • 9/11

    I was about seven years old when this happened, and I remember watching the planes crash into the buildings on tv. My parents where freaking out and then the whole airport security system changed. I flew a lot so I saw these changes and how they affected travel time.
