My passions include my family--spending time with them; teaching; my friends; playing music at my church; being outside in my garden; or in the mountains whenever I am able. (and if I am not "there," I am thinking about being "out there" :)

I don't live too far from the Cascades or Olympics, so I get there whenever possible. This is an amazing place to live.
