What is one of your hobbies?
One of my hobbies is snowboarding! I also really like to fish for Salmon in the fall.
What is one thing you are proud of?
I am really proud of my children. Sometimes they make it hard, but in the end they always make me proud.
Why do you think advocacy is important?
Advocating for the needs and rights of all marginalized groups in society is important because making people aware of the needs of others creates new allies and helps to make a better society.
What is your favorite local resource?
As a former school teacher, I am a big fan of teachers and public schools. So, I would have to say Lane ESD is my favorite local resource.
