Want to know more? Here are some fun facts about me:
- This summer I visited 5 lighthouses with my brother and sister
- I acquired a mountain bike during the pandemic and have been slowly exploring our region’s trails. One of my favorite no-car-needed trips is taking the fast ferry to Kingston and riding out to the Port Gamble Forest Heritage Park.
- I have a telescope that I am still figuring out how to use. I love to learn about the stars and ponder the vastness of our universe.
- I have a cat named Catsy Cline and 3 bikes nicknamed after other women in country (Emmylou, Dolly, and Tanya “Trucker”)
