I am a very active mother of two also very active children, ages 9 (Alivia "Ava") and 11 (Francisco "Gabriel"). My husband Mauricio is an intellectual property attorney with Knobbe Martens in Seattle. I am a stay at home mom whose main responsibilities are managing my family's incredibly hectic and active schedule and making sure everyone is where they need to be when they need to be there and with any and all equipment/stuff as required!!!! We have a great zest for active living and we are fortunate to live in the beautiful Northwest where we have access to relaxed weekends in the San juan Islands on our boat or six months of great skiing in the Cascades or Whistler. We live in a quaint little town just 10 miles east of Seattle nestled among three Alps (Tiger mtn, Squak mtn and Cougar Mtn) and I relish my daily runs whether on the trails or on the road in what must be one of the most beautiful places in the world. Truly a dream location to run or ride. We have a large appetite not only for sports and active learning but also for the arts -whether it is music, dance, theatre or art. For years we have been active patrons of the Seattle Symphony. We enjoy travelling and learning about other cultures/places/food/history and exposing our children to all this beautiful world has to offer. My motto is definitely Carpe Diem. No sitting allowed unless it involves being curled up in a cozy blanket in a comfy chair with a hot cup of really good coffee and a really good book learning about another culture or period in history. I also love antiquing and decorating my house with the treasures I find when out exploring new places.i love thinking about the original owners and how the item was used and loved before it ended up with me. Lastly , besides being madly in love with my husband and kids, I am also very passionate about our beloved Labradoodle, Corduroy. She is a gentle soul and the best companion our family could ask for. Dogs rock!! We are very accustomed to travel and our kids are super flexible! They adjust to new enviroments very quickly. They are also very good kids and will definitely know how to treat your home with care and respect - just as they do in our own home. We promise to leave you home in tip top condition - as if we had not been there. We are very excited to begin our exploration this beautiful world in which we all share.
