I was born in Chicago and raised in Seattle but I have called Kirkland my home for the past 30+ years.  I am deeply committed to keeping Greater Kirkland family friendly and making sure visitors always feel welcome.  Walking around the downtown area 3 to 4 times a week this is what I see.  I love the area.  Kirkland is such a neat place to work and to live.  I am also an avid Kirkland volunteer.

In the Fall I work the annual Octoberfest and there are always 5k and 10k races to help with.  In the Winter I help decorate the town for Christmas; lights, wreaths and garlands, and there are always the races to help with.  In the spring there is the Easter egg hunt. In the Summer I help out with Summerfest one of the biggest festivals of the year and the "Taste of Kirkland", a wine tasting event.  When I am not working, or volunteering I am out walking or running around Kirkland.

For years I have been a competitive runner; 5 and 10k distances with a few half marathons thrown in.  While I still enjoy these runs I find the walking speed just as satisfying, and the slower pace is of course much easier on my legs.

I have another passion as well.  I have had a long standing commitment to a mental health organization that trains professionals who address early childhood issues such as preventing child abuse.  While not on the board, I have designated both time and money to help them achieve their goals.  Over the years I have been more than pleased to see them succeed.
