I've bounced around a lot, both geographically and professionally. I've lived in California, Alaska, The Philippines, Arizona, and now Washington. I've worked as a teacher, missionary, office manager, and RN, with many years in hospice nursing. I'm a lifelong student. I share my home with two little dogs who light up my life and tolerate my mandolin playing: Tenzin Tobias, a Tibetan Terrier, and Bodhi Benjamin, a Havanese.
