Born and raised in the greater Highline area. UPS graduate and married with two daughters . retired from Boeing. Hobbies include family vacations, fishing and golf.
Grew up in the Netherlands, moved to Seattle in 1971, married 45 years to Chris Boysen. We have two daughters married and 1 grand child! Retired and hobbies are, tennis, gardening and walking! Besides becoming an exchange club member, also currently applying to become a volunteer for the CASA program!
I am a wife, mother of three, and Burien resident who loves what The Exchange Club of Highline offers our community. Being part of this group of passionate, giving people makes me fall in love with the town I have chosen to raise my family. My husband and I moved to Burien in 2007 and opened our business, Collins Chiropractic. We have since filled our home with 3 wild little boys and a whole lot of noise! Given where we are in life, the mission of the Exchange Club to end child abuse really resonates with me. The programs to put backpacks and school supplies in the hands of kids in need, provide scholarships for college-bound Highline area students, and serve with love at the local food bank are the ones that light me up! But there are even more things happening in Exchange to better our community…too many to even list. The needs in our community are mighty, but so are the hearts for service of the lovely people I have the pleasure of knowing through the Exchange Club of Highline.
I’ve lived in the South End of Seattle most of my life – raised in West Seattle (go Indians!) attended UW (go Dawgs!} and City Univ. My career was at Boeing, from which I recently retired. I am married to Joel and for fun we enjoy our kids and grandkids; we also enjoy traveling and golfing. I joined the Exchange Club as part of my Christian walk with Jesus.
