I live in SE Portland with my husband, Shea, and our identical twin boys, Kaveh and Keenan. They turned 5 this summer and are excited (and a bit nervous) to start kindergarten this fall. I spent the majority of my summer exploring Oregon through the eyes of my children. We filled most of our days with hiking and camping, berry picking, swimming at the local outdoor pool, and enjoying our backyard garden. We also took a 2 week road trip to several national parks including Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. A highlight of that trip was seeing a wolf in the wild!
A little more about me: I’ve been a classroom teacher for the past eleven years. Before teaching at Willamette, I was down the road at Stafford Primary. In my free time I love to garden, play guitar and piano, read, hike and kayak. I also love to travel and spend time outdoors. Before the boys, Shea and I traveled to many parts of the world including South and Central America, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand. We also spent several summers in Alaska, where I was a sea kayak guide and had the opportunity to paddle with seals, otters, orcas and even humpback whales. I look forward to sharing some of my experiences with you!
