I've been married for 25 years to Jim, and we have three kids--Isaac, Jamie and Steve--two of whom are now in college. I stayed home with my kids until Steve was in first grade, gradually worked my way up to full-time, decided I wasn't cut out for being a full-time employee and a mom (it takes some coordination and energy!) so as I've been able to, I've backed off my hours and intensity so that I can devote the time and energy to Steve that he needs while he's still at home.
B.A. in Music, minor in Art from Whitworth College, Spokane, WA.
Certificate from Northwest College of Hair Design in Hair Design
Organizations / Affilations:
I currently volunteer with Monica's Place (a domestic violence shelter,) doing hair for women who've perhaps not had a lot of pampering in the recent past and/or who are trying to get back into the work force, on their feet again.
Have also volunteered as a Parent-Mentor with EMO's Parent-Mentor program, as a "counselor" of sorts with the Sexual Assault Resource Center, and was Art Literacy Coordinator at Ridgewood Elementary for two years (while Steve was still there,) in addition to helping out in other ways at various schools.
I've also been involved with my church, usually via music but in the past with kids--the usual for moms at church!
