I'm a widowed single mom of a 3yo boy, living in Portland, Oregon, but grew up in Washington state and lived in New York, California, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Germany and Italy along the way. I work as a construction project manager for a public agency, and love what I do. I spend most of my free time running around after my son and trying to expose him (and me) to new and wonderful things! So far, he like avocados, mom-made knit caps, really big machines, and public transit. Some day I'm hoping to add lettuce to that list.
