We joined the Seville family in 2012. Paul was raised in Bend, Oregon and I in San Jose, California. We’ve raised our two sons, Marshall (20) and JaKobe (17) in Oregon and Arizona.
We love the south Gilbert community. It is the perfect blend of farming community meets suburbia. We love nature and the conveniences of shopping and services only minutes away. We find Gilbert very friendly with a positive energy. Residents obviously love God, country and local community and that matches our values.
Paul works at Palo Verde Nuclear Power plant as a project manager making sure the structures are sound. It’s a very long commute (172 miles round trip), which speaks to how much we enjoy living in Seville! Paul reads dozens of books every year, and has music of every genre playing every day. He loves to grill meat on the weekends.
Our sons both loved and graduated from Benjamin Franklin High School. Marshall is a student of Utah Valley University studying media/music, and has a YouTube presence as The Great Dolvondo where he supports himself composing phenomenal video game-themed music with his buddy, “CG5.” Early this year they released their first live video, Getting Over It. JaKobe enjoyed weightlifting and wrestling at BFHS, is a voracious reader and war history wizard. He begins his college career at Brigham Young University-Provo in the fall studying history.
Instructional and inspirational public speaking has provided me a rewarding career. I recently became life insurance and securities licensed and enjoy teaching families how to get out of debt, protect their families financially and multiply their income. I love to watch movies and tv with hot buttery popcorn, lift weights, machine quilt and take photos.
You may not know the muffin man who lives on Drury Lane, but you will want to know the bread man who lives on Vallejo Drive! Paul LOVES to share his handmade bread items on Sundays with our neighbors. Please don’t be alarmed if we knock on your door to share some. It’s one of our favorite ways to get to know our neighbors. We love to socialize, eat out, play games or just talk. Please stop us if you see us and introduce yourself. Get on the bread list!
