We live in Southern California, where we own a small condo. We have been together for over 10 years and were just married in July 2013. We adopted Elton (our little dog) two years ago. We are very health oriented and enjoy reading, coffee shops, yoga and travel. Brenda recently completed a Master's Physician Assistant program. Before starting the PA program, she was a yoga instructor and massage therapist. Lisa is also a massage therapist. Lisa is involved in Amnesty International and in community development projects such as starting a poetry workshop for teens at her local library. In the past, we owned a small Fair Trade gift shop in Claremont and have traveled to India, Guatemala and Nicaragua to visit directly with cooperatives. We enjoy meeting interesting people from diverse backgrounds.
