I grew up in Santa Cruz, California and moved to Portland, Oregon in 1998. I love traveling, especially to tropical places. Some of my hobbies are reading, hiking, yoga, going to the wonderful cheap theatres in Portland, seeing bands, and meditation. My husband, Bill, and I love to garden and hang out with our giant cat, Chairman Meow and little turtle, Sabra. I am an honest, trustworthy person with a positive attitude and lots of love for this world!
