Both of us were raised with wonderful parents, siblings, friends and extended family. We love our families and are very close to them. We both enjoyed school and met each other during college. “How we met” from Angela: “Torben came over to my friends apartment (which I was hanging out at) to borrow something and I remember meeting him and saying ‘your name Torben is so interesting,’ and he told me that it is Danish and that he has Danish family. We started talking and he asked me out. We went with his friend and my friend on a double date to a fun Hollywood comedy show and then for hot chocolate.” We had so much fun dating, fell in love and were married in December of 1997. Thereafter, we graduated from college - Angela with a Bachelor’s degree in Speech Pathology and Torben with Bachelor degrees in English and Political Science. Torben subsequently graduated from Law School with a Juris Doctorate degree in 2002. Torben has a wonderful career enjoys working as an attorney. Angela is a mother and homemaker. Our daughter Ava is the best thing that has ever happened to us. We love her more than words can say, and look forward to another little one. We are best friends and still love doing anything together as a family.
Background for Angela:
I am the oldest of seven children, five girls, and two boys. I love my family and friends, and they have taught me a lot. As a child I loved being creative and playing all sorts of things. I loved creating art and reading books. I was very involved in dancing, tap, ballet, and jazz. I enjoyed my childhood. I loved playing with my sisters and friends. I enjoyed piano, skiing, tennis and volleyball. In junior and senior high school I was involved in dance, drama and student leadership. I loved music (and still do) and listened to my pink boom box. I loved fashion and shopping (and still do). I enjoy learning and loved college, where I was involved socially and academically. My family means the world to me and has always been there for me. My mother is amazing and she has taught me so much. I have had so many wonderful friends and so much fun with them. I graduated from college with my Bachelor’s Degree in Speech Pathology and enjoyed using my education in working with elementary school children. I LOVE being a mother and we have so much fun as a family.
Background for Torben:
As a child, I loved to read and write – something I still do every chance I can get. Growing up with a house full of boys, we were always very active and involved. I especially loved playing all kinds of sports and spending time outdoors. I still am an avid sports fan, playing and participating in my favorites, particularly soccer. Since I was young, my favorite team has been the Arsenal soccer team from London, England and I enjoy following them even today. I was able to turn my love of sports into an actual high school job, working as a ball boy and locker room attendant for our local NBA professional basketball team. I also was the captain of my debate team, editor of school newspaper, and played on the football, tennis and track teams, and spent the summers as a counselor at a Boy Scout summer camp. All these experiences helped me be a successful college student, professional and a husband and father. I love, and enjoy spending time with my family.
