I spend my time between Vancouver, WA and LaQuinta, CA hiking in both areas. I enjoy introducing people to the trail in a fun, safe and responsible manner. In my spare time I travel to unique and beautiful back country areas for exploration and enjoyment. I never cease to be amazed at this beautiful planet I live on. I have a rescue dog named Mulligan who is quite the desert dog. He loves chasing hares but never seems to catch them. My husband David and I enjoy sitting down at the end of our day and talking over our adventures. I am a retired Registered Nurse. I have a passion for reading, boating, life long learning, volunteering and spending precious time with family and friends. I hope to see you on the trail for a hike real soon.
