Question and Answer Session
For our Q&A session, our current members submit questions to ask the member of the month. They are a mix of business, personal and random questions.
WBPA: What do you like to do in your spare time?
Erin Misner: “My favorite thing to do is spend time with family. We have four children and one granddaughter in three different states. I also enjoy long distance running and have run in races since high school from 5K races up to marathons. I am a member of a number of military organizations including the Ft. Detrick Retiree Council, the Veterans Advisory Committee for Frederick County Hospice, and the Military Officers Organization of America. I also enjoy reading and watching television.”
WBPA: When did you move to the Walkersville area? What made this area a good choice for you?
Erin Misner: “My family moved to Walkersville when my husband retired from the Army in 1996. He grew up in the Walkersville area. We both served in the Army – I retired from the Army and Army Reserves as a Colonel after 30 years of service. This was a great place to raise our four children after moving around the world with the Army.”
WBPA: Have you always lived in the Walkersville area?
Erin Misner: “I grew up in New Jersey and Jeff grew up in the Walkersville area. We met as cadets at West Point and lived in many different places before returning after his retirement. During our time in the Army, we were stationed at West Point teaching mathematics for 3 years, jumping out of planes at Ft. Bragg, NC for 4 years, Ft. Rucker, AL, Ft. Gordon, GA, Ft. Sill, OK, Ft. Polk, LA, and Seoul, South Korea.”
WBPA: What’s your favorite quote from a TV show/movie/book?
Erin Misner: “One of my favorite things is a poem, “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost. I think many people can relate their own lives to this poem. I had started on a path in high school and college and it completely changed when I applied for West Point in 1976. I was part of the first graduating class to include women and it shaped the path for the rest of my life. There are many decisions I have made since then that have also changed the course of my life in ways I never expected. At the time I decided to start in real estate, I had two master’s degrees and was working on a third. I never expected to start a new career, but I am so glad I chose that path.”
WBPA: What was your first job? What do you remember most about your first job?
Erin Misner: “My first job was working at our local small town newspaper in Bordentown, NJ. My father worked for the newspaper as a photographer and compositor (putting the newspaper together). The technology was so much different then. I enjoyed working for my father and saving money for my first car.”
