Stephanie Michelle Klimes
Michelle was born May 21, 1975, in Twin Falls, Idaho, to Mike and Bonnie Vecera. Michelle attended Twin Falls High School and CSI, maintaining a 4.0 grade average throughout all of her public school and college years. While attending CSI, she met the love of her life, Andy Klimes. They were married on July 20, 1996.
Michelle and Andy moved to Boise to start their lives together. They had two beautiful children, Caitlin (born March 14, 1998) and Kyra (born April 12, 2001). After moving to Boise, Michelle worked as an administrative assistant at Richardson Labs and then later for Saint Alphonsus at the Micron Clinic. After Kyra was born, Michelle took on the job of raising both of her children full time. In 2008, Michelle and her family returned to the Twin Falls area, moving to Filer, Idaho. She then went to work at St. Luke’s in the billing office, later transferring to medical records where she currently worked.
