This month’s feature member is Jessie Yvonne Enloe. She joined Newcomer’s because she was new to the area and she wanted to acclimate quickly and find her tribe.

Tell us about yourself: 

I am originally from Colorado, and my husband is from southern Illinois, but we lived in the Detroit Metro Area for several years before moving here. I left my job at PNC in January to stay home with my daughter. I have two senior citizen dogs, and I consider myself a dog person. I love spicy food, traveling, music, spending time with my family, and I have the mouth of an angry sailor. 

If all the States in the USA were represented by food, what food would each state that you have lived in be represented by?

Colorado Green Chili, Detroit Coney Dogs, Saint Louis Toasted Ravioli, Pittsburgh primanti brothers sandwich. 

If you could only read/watch one book/movie for the rest of your life, what would you choose and why?

The practical answer would be Encyclopedia Britannica because it is constantly updated with current information, but the fun answer is the Harry Potter series. 

What is the luckiest thing that has ever happened to you?

Having my daughter is by far the luckiest thing that ever happened to me. Her beautiful smile reminds me every day how lucky I am to have her in my life. 

If time travel were real: when and where in time would you go and why?

I would go back to 1985 and purchase as much Apple stock as I could. Then I would set up an irrevocable trust under my name that I wouldn’t be able to touch until the age of 28 (Yes, 28. I am fully aware of how irresponsible I was in my early 20’s.) I would do this for the money. With this money I would become a career student and possibly pursue a PHD in anthropology, take care of my family, and start a nonprofit.  

If you could wake up tomorrow and know absolutely everything about ONE thing… what would it be and why?

Theology. Just imagine what it would like to know the answer to every theological question ever asked.
