I am a wife and mother of two amazing boys. We love to be together hiking, working in the yard, playing in the snow, doing art and playing games, among many other things. My family is my world!
My training and work history is in elementary special education, and I am passionate about advocating for children and others with disabilities. I do not tolerate any kind of put-downs or derogatory language whether intentional or not. There is no excuse for marginalizing anyone based on their gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, IQ, appearance, etc. I think that we need divergent thinkers now more than ever to help the human race solve some of the monumental issues and problems now and in the future.
I have many other interests and skills, such as tutoring, knitting, making all kinds of different art and craft items, baking and kombucha making. I'm sure I could think of more...
I have several blogs (not too current but fun to read!):
I also have an Etsy store:
I live, work and play in Portland, Oregon.
Thanks for checking out my profile! Send me a message for any reason - I love to connect with new people!
