I am from the east coast originally- Boston, NY & DC. My husband & I have been on the west coast since 2007, having lived in southern & northern CA and are now putting down roots just north of Portland, in southern WA. We live in a retreat-like setting, on a mountain with views, surrounded by trees, with no neighbor in sight, for which I am thankful every day.
I left the corporate marketing world a year ago and am studying to become a nutritional therapist. My husband, Paul, has been in solar energy his entire career and is considered a pioneer in his field.
My passions are nature, hiking, cooking, travelling, nutrition, health, the environment, good food & wine, my husband of 30 years, my two grown daughters, my cocker spaniel, Oliver and two cats, Bailey & Luna and my multitude of friends & family throughout the country.
When we settled in the Portland metropolitan area we felt as if we had come home. We can't get enough of exploring and eating throughout this interesting, quirky, friendly city and hiking the Columbia River Gorge...both right in our backyard! How lucky are we? We love to share so come visit!
