Stacey Siepert Evans
I've been reading everyone else's updates since highschool, so I guess now I'll do mine. After graduation, I had no idea what I wanted to do. I met my wonderful husband Kyle in June of 2001, and we were married on March 15,2002. I worked as a manager at Wendys until April, when I shipped out to Navy boot camp in Chicago, Ill. After 3 months of fun filled basic training, I took a plane to Charleston, SC, where I was allowed 2 weeks to go home and pack everything up before starting in July. I went to 'A' school, where I was trained to be an Electrician's Mate, and graduated from that school in December of 2002. In January I started Power school, where I learned the theory behind Naval Nuclear Power. I moved on to Prototype just down the street that summer and graduated in November of 2003. Since then life has gone by quickly, we had our daughter, Cadence in August of 2004, and our son, Christian in September of 2007. I have served on the in Everett, WA since January of 2005, and we are expecting our third child in April of next year. I deployed in February 2006 to the Western Pacific, where my ship visited Hong Kong; ; Pattaya Beach, Thailand; Singapore; and made 2 stops in Hawaii where I got to spend a much needed week with my husband and daughter whom I had not seen in five months, the ship participated in RIMPAC, an exercise with several different navies before heading home. We returned to homeport August 12, 2006-four days before my daughter's second birthday. I started working on my BSAST in Nuclear Engineering that fall and finally finished in December of 2008. I am currently pursuing my Masters of Science in Managment from Thomas Edison State College and hope to graduate by the end of next year. We bought a house in Marysville, WA in March of 2007. Life has been fun and busy, as I see it has been for everyone else! I have a blog, but I haven't updated it in almost a year. It's www.KyleandStacey.blogspot.com. I'm sure I'll do some updating soon, since I'll be transferring off of the ship and should have some more free time.
