To Reach Me
Projects I Like to Brag About...

What’s Always on My Mind: Is there enough venison and wild boar in my freezer. Did I do the right thing at the right time. Am I leaving my kids a world in which they could have a better life than I did.

Fun Fact: In 8th grade I was a National Merit Scholar in French. Once upon a time my bowling average was 145. I was the Tragedian female impersonator in “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.”

Mantra: Be the change you want to see in the world. War does not determine who is right - only who is left. Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit, and wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

People don’t know that…My mother was an artist, and my father was a third-generation engineer. I taught Sustainable Lifestyles and Organic Gardening at Rivendell Farm in Cave Junction, Oregon in the Summer of 1982. I enjoy hunting for wild game to eat. I played alto sax in the Pep Band in college. I love photography. I am a huge fan of the artist Friedensreich Regentag Dunkelbunt Hundertwasser.
