When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time outdoors. I love all things nature, including hiking and kayaking! Besides the outdoors, I also enjoy reading, writing, a good cup of herbal tea (there is something I very much love about having an electric tea kettle) and spending time with my family and friends, both human and animal. I am married and have two children. I understand the complexities that busyness of parenthood and spousal relationships bring into life and am humbled to have the opportunity to continue to learn how to nurture these relationships in a way that allows for deeper connections with myself and my loved ones and I wish that for you too. I hold much gratitude for those I share this life with and am honored to walk with you on your path.
