Portland, Oregon Ambitions To be a fabulous mother and loving wife and discover a career I am truly passionate about Biggest turn-ons Shyness, facial hair and a guy who likes to get dirty and work with his handsd My first job Assisting in the sales of heavy construction equipment. I had no idea what a backhoe was, but I sure pretended I did! A small town girl from a small town in Oregon, Sara Jean Underwood was raised an only child, where she developed a reputation as something of a low-maintenance Barbie a tomboy, if you will with an affinity for geeky fanfare, like Star Wars. Her first job was far from glamorous. She worked as a sales assistant for heavy construction equipment.
