I’ve lived in Minnesota, South Dakota, Utah, California, and now, Washington. I’ve lived in Peshastin for 30 years, a testament to the allure of the eastern slopes of the Cascades and small, rural communities.

I graduated from Central Washington University and worked at the USFS Wenatchee River Ranger District as a Botany Program Manager until my retirement in 2019. I am currently Chair of the Peshastin Community Council.

I am grateful for the diversity of our natural landscapes and all the opportunities they provide for spending time in nature. I like animals, films, gardening, reading and creative pursuits. I am also passionate about affordable housing, sustainable growth, and preserving livable, supportive communities.
