I live in Edmonds, a small town about 15 miles north of Seattle. I retired from a nursing career last year. I enjoy walking, reading, scrapbooking - and of course travel! I love women's basketball and have season tickets to both our local WNBA and university teams. I do volunteer work at several theatres in the area, and volunteer weeky at a free trade shop which supports a training center for girls in Mali. My greatest joy is spending time with my family; I have one daughter and two granddaughters ages 9 and 19.
