Personal Information:
Born in Kansas. Grew up in the SF Bay Area. Living in the Sacramento, CA area which I love. Married with two mischievous yet loving kitties. Worked in public service for 26 years and proud of it. Recently retired and working on taking care of myself and finding out who I am after being work-focused for much of my life.


Other Information:
I love to run but have had injuries over the past years so mainly walk, hike, cycle and swim. I was training for my first triathlon when I broke my ankle (getting into a kayak!) I hope to be able to train for one again. I also like being outside, the ocean, the mountains, animals, especially our two kitties, reading, watching movies and TV series, spending time with my good friends.

    Oh my goodness, 6 years? My dad has been gone 7 months and I feel like I should be done with all this by now. Crazy.

    Bets, I love it when you drop by. Thank you for your touching words. Bernie now is suffering from Vertigo and he’s having a hell of a time keeping his balance. This usually is seen in older doggies! ;0(
