My happy place is being in the outdoors and I am fortunate to live in the pacific northwest, because it is here that I have many opportunities to be in close relationship to the natural world. That is where I find solace and my “re-set button”. Whether I am hiking or skiing in the mountains, plunging in the frigid waters of the puget sound, or walking amongst the cedar and firs, I am connecting with something much bigger than my small self and for that I am grateful.

I am committed to the practices of the meditation and contemplation, body/mind connection and creative expression, because it is within this work that I find a deeper connection to myself and from that place within myself, I am able to help others

In addition to my love for the outdoors and wilderness, I also have a love of learning, and like to cook, garden, paint and hang out with friends and family. One of the things I value most is the meaningful connections I have made in this life.

And to the forest I go to lose my mind and find my soul

Nature is not a place to visit, it is a home
