What do you like about living in the Pacific Northwest?
I enjoy the water. It creates the lakes, rivers, streams, trees and Puget Sound for us to enjoy. The Pacific Northwest is perfect for my hobbies: fly fishing, biking, camping and boating (motor and sail).
Why do you work here (at the District)?
I work at SCD to make a difference and find a balance. As the world grows and develops SCD is the perfect place to find the balance between food and nature, business and recreation. We work cooperatively with everybody to help us balance how we live and play.
- I am the black sheep of the family. The majority of my family on both sides are teachers. My grandparents down to my brother and cousin covered college to kindergarten.
