About Me

The scoop

I’m a compulsive story-teller, traveler, and retired baby boomer (don’t hate me I feel younger than I look). I grew up a ranchers’ kid in Northern California, but for the last ten years I’ve been living the dream in an old farmhouse near Boise.

Because I love the American West with its rich heritage and traditions, that’s the primary (but not the only) lense I look through. The people, places, and values I grew up with here sustain and motivate me even as I reach out to understand and experience new places, people, and cultures.

Wife to Rich (the Professor), mother to Meg (the Realtor), mother-in-law to Jordan (the Blackhawk Pilot), and proud Mama to various wonderful G-Kids here and in Alabama, I’m always bringing home strays – human and otherwise. We share a place with exceptional dogs and ornery horses. Life is good.

I’m passionate about family, friends, faith, horses, travel, cooking (and eating), winetasting, and finding answers to my why questions.

Thanks for visiting!
