I am a lover of life, with a positive attitude and healthy lifestyle. Bike riding and kayaking move me forward, as does the morning run. Beach walks, playing in the water and sand, fill many moments. Observing the beauty that surrounds me and engaging with it are necessary moments. I have a love of animals and nature, as they always have an important place in my life. Dogs and dog teams, as well as raising and training horses filled many years of my life. Working with disabled children and adults in the classroom and the out-of-doors has enriched my life. Reading, writing, sewing, baking, and cooking healthy foods brings indoor smiles to my heart and face. Sleeping outside or in a tent, having time to myself, enjoying friends, and balancing my life are essentials as well. I am easy-going and low maintenance.
