Edrien (Edi, for short) is from the beautiful tropical island of Guam (a U.S. Territory) and is of Chamorro and Filipino descent. She came to the United States in 2005, when she enlisted in the United States Air Force where she unknowingly met the love of her life, Steve. They went their separate ways in 2009 and when they reconnected in 2019, decided to join their two families and settle in Bartow, Fl.
Together, she and Steve have 5 children; Devon (18) – who has enlisted in the U.S. Navy, Steve Jr. (15), Stefan (13), Nichole (12), and Adrianna (Soon to be 1!).
When Edrien isn’t relaxing at home with her tribe, she can be found traipsing around Florida discovering new and fun things to do. Obviously, being born and raised on an island, beach life is the life she loves, but hopping from theme park to theme park has become the new normal for her. With all these kids, why not?!
Hobbies include cooking and learning new recipes, running (in a gym with no bugs in sight), watching new and silly TV shows as well as insightful and mind-changing documentaries, and her favorite thing to do, reading. She would reread the Harry Potter series over and over if she had the time, but also gets lost in autobiographies. Learning about the past and how others experienced it is incredibly fascinating to her.
While she has held some interesting positions over the years, including Sales Executive/Manager, Quality Control Technician, and Design Team member, she always falls back on her Personnel Specialist training from the Air Force. Her passion is people and making lives better for others.
