I am married with two teenage children, an 18-year old son and a 15-year old daughter. My husband is a federal public defender and I work part-time as an attorney and also owner/manager of rental properties. We enjoy travel and time camping and hiking in the Pacific Northwest. I am also a somewaht slow but enthusiastic runner, and enjoy participating in races because I am inspired by other runners. One of my goals for this year is to do my first half marathon. Last year we had a great trip to NYC and Boston, and this year are looking forward to DC and NYC again. We are easy-going guests - try to have a light footprint and be flexible with the unexpected. I do love a comfortable bed and good food. Life goal - to live in a state of grateful appreciation.
