• I grew up on Samish Island in Skagit Valley in a house on the shore fifteen miles from town. I am happiest walking in the woods, on the beach or paddling around (in calm water) camera in hand. When the weather brings us inside, I enjoy reading making jewelry, cooking, relaxing with my husband and son, and visiting family and friends. I am excited to have a little piece of Vashon to plant flowers and vegetables on (behind a deer fence apparently!) and to make our home.
