Born in the sunny state of California I was  raised  in Washington  with my 3 siblings by a strict and very confident single mother.  I graduated from the local West High School with honors.  I went on to Central Washington State College where I majored in teaching.   I  did indeed teach adults a huge portion of my adult life.  I also drove a school bus , was a driver trainer for my district, and thoroughly enjoyed my interactions with children for almost 30years. During that time I was involved in many volunteer activities with children, girl and boy scouts and on the board of several youth sporting organizations.

    I am the mother of 4 amazing adult children all of whom live and work in this area.  They are all among my biggest supporters of my campaign, having produced my video and most of my campaign materials.

    Luckily I have been rewarded with many amazing grandchildren.  Some of them have already become involved in learning and volunteering in the political arena. One is now a drone pilot in the United States Army.  I also have been privileged to take many of them on extended family vacations across the United States. They, with their computer intelligences have taught me how to use our computer phones,  while I teach them how to read a map!

    Later in my life,  I began my career as a business owner. While I was still working for the district I bought and ran a retail establishment, bought and rehabed a restaurant and still ran the construction business  My husband and and I now are currently focusing on the  construction end.  I specialize in the financial end.  So when something is needed, my job is to figure out how to make it work!

    That would be my strength in Olympia.  When someone says that can't be done, I say watch me!!!

    My views on the environment are pretty simple.  I have been an organic gardener since before it was politically correct!   In my expansive gardens and orchard I use no pesticides and only organic supplementation.  In order to survive and thrive for people and the planet we must pay attention and do no harm.
