I grew up in my early years in the Seattle area. Our family then moved to the Yakima Valley, where my parents bought a cherry orchard and grape vineyard. I spent many years in the Yakima Valley, where life was always full of adventures and experiences I would never have had if I had continued to grow up in the city. In my early twenties I moved back to the Seattle area, where I still reside. I graduated college in 1999 with my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, in Art. After graduating, I taught art at a local college for several years. I am married to a wonderful husband who supports me above and beyond in all that I do. I have one daughter, Autumn, a son-in-law Kevin, and one Grandson, Christian. My husband and I love to travel, where I enjoy photographing anything and everything! I recently completed Chaplaincy training and am looking forward to receiving my ordination in the next few weeks. My plan is to work with our local Police and Fire Department. I love floral design, I have been a floral designer for 20 years!
