What do you like about living in the Pacific Northwest?
Driving west over the pass from the east side of the state embodies why I love living here. The fog (and often rain!), the trees, the waterfalls, and the tall peaks. I love the feeling that I'm surrounded by hundreds of living creatures that I can't even see.
Why do you work here (at the District)?
I've always enjoyed meeting and working with new people. I love that at the Conservation District I get to constantly meet new landowners and help answer questions and solve problems. I believe that we all want clean water, healthy rivers and forests, and viable agricultural land - the things that people love about living in the Pacific NW. I've always been passionate about working to achieve those.
- I love salsa dancing!
