I am a travel professional who travels passionately. My husband is an IT geek and we live with our 5 year old daughter on a wooded 1/2 acre slice of southwest Seattle. Along with plenty of never ending yard and garden care, the husband spends his time rock climbing, and welding art & furniture. When I am not working (and yes sometimes traveling) as an expedition and adventure specialist, I write fiction in my not-so spare time and volunteer at my daughter's elementary school. Our family loves roadtrips, festivals, hot springs, funky abodes, hiking and exploring the beautiful Northwest and beyond. At the risk of sounding like a Seattle cliche, we're also foodies, hoppy IPA lovers and AeroPress coffee devotees.
