I am a surgery nurse who works per diem in Seattle between missions as a field worker for MSF (Doctors Without Borders). I have lived in the Seattle area since 1988 and in the Pacific NW since the mid 70's. My medical missions have taken me to Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Haiti, Ethiopia, and Sierra Leone. My two sons live in the Seattle area. I am clean, quiet, and respectful with a strong sense of community and environmental responsibility. I like to clear my head with long walks or hikes and am a white water rafter with many trips rafting down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. I can supply both personal and professional references in the Seattle area if needed. My heroes are MLK, Alfred E Newman, Satchel Paige, Will Rogers, Woody Guthrie, and the like.
