My rich and meaningful personal life informs every aspect of the way that I conduct my work.
I adore my husband, a pilot, musician and everyday inspiration of thought. My 5-year-old daughter, an artist, climber and lover of animals, delights me every day.
I dig in the soil to cultivate my own food. I cook with my daughter to feed both spirit and body.
I am a volunteer doula at Sutter Davis Medical Center, providing physical and emotional support to women during labor and childbirth.
I enjoy adventure sports and have made more than 300 skydives. I am an avid new climber at The Boulder Field.
Every day, I actively cultivate loving-kindness, acceptance and compassion for all living beings.
I am grateful to live the life I have chosen and humbled to use my skills to better my community with my work.
