I've lived mostly along the west coast from Alaska to Mexico...and in WA State for the past 12 years...originally from the Southwest. I work in a local school district as an Instructional Math Coach. I'm also an artist in my spare time - mostly drawing with colored pencils and graphite, though I have used a wide variety of mediums. I enjoy live music - classic rock, blues, jazz, country. I like hiking and long walks...traveling when I can...alone or with my grown children.
