After leaving the National Park Services and a teaching post in Banff, Alberta, Canada, to marry Jim, over 30 years ago, we have lived in Colorado, North Carolina and now Oregon. I love Oregon the best, enjoying both the mountains and the ocean! I have been employed at WOU since 1997, first as the DEP Fitness and Pool Manager/Programmer, and since 2006, teaching activity classes for HPE. Our home includes 6 rescue cats, a rescue dog, and a 22 year old cockatiel! Our dog (lab mix) loves to take ME on runs, so I can keep fit to teach!
