Jennie Duecker

Age: 42

Occupation: I own Anything Personalized, a store that specializes in engraving, screen printing, heat transfer, embroidery and the full range of personalization.

How long have you worked in Stow? I have owned the store here for 19 months.

How would you describe the Stow-Munroe Falls area to someone who has never been here? It's family oriented and safe. It's a nice town with friendly people.

What is your favorite activity in the area? Taking our dogs to "Bow Wow Beach"

Hobbies/Interests: We have ATVs (four-wheelers). I like to go riding on my property. I also enjoy reading, without question.

What would you do if you were the mayor of Stow? I would try to do something to bring back the businesses in Stow. I also would try to promote business, especially the small, family-owned businesses.

What is your biggest accomplishment? My family, my education and starting up my own business.

Whom do you most admire (excluding relatives)? People who have faced obstacles in life and still end up coming out ahead and working through them.

What is the strangest job you have ever had? I was an intelligence specialist in the Navy. I got to read satellite images of our non-allies.

Something most people don't know about me is ... I hate snakes to the point where I won't even look at pictures of them. I have a huge phobia of them. I don't like live snakes, dead snakes or fake snakes. I won't even let my kids have stuffed-animal versions of snakes or pictures of snakes.
