Val is a member of the math faculty at Tacoma Community College, with a specialization working with students of all ages and backgrounds who have a particular fear or dislike of math. In her spare time she enjoys various needle crafts, especially knitting, and working on the family's 2-acre farm. Brad's work away from our farm and hosting guests takes him to interesting places. He is an ordained minister and officiates at weddings and assists families with end of life care and funeral /memorial planning. He is a certified golf and track and field coach for Special Olympics. He works on special occasions caring for families as a personal chef and food coach. He even worked in the past year cooking in an assisted living facility. Mostly he works and prays at home. He has a private practice as a spiritual director guiding those who seek to deepen their prayer life. Val & Brad play Scrabble almost daily and enjoy the fact that our busy teenagers still like to play family board games with us. We love to bake. With 90 fruit trees on our land there is always something to turn into a pie!
