I am 53 years old and live In Olympia, Washington in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. I live with my husband and our three senior rescue pets, our cat Smokey, and two dogs Abel & Izzy. We've lived in Washington state since 2016. Before that we lived in Chicago.

In addition to my professional work, I love to garden. This photo shows an orange calendula flower and Thai basil with purple blooms in my front yard garden. Here's a cute video my husband filmed and narrated showing me and some of our pets in our backyard just a few years ago.
