Personal note

I am an outdoor enthusiast, and enjoy spending time in nature.  I love to hike, kayak or canoe, take photographs, and sometimes just relax in a hammock.  I consider myself fortunate to have a supportive, loving husband and two wonderful daughters who encourage my adventures and time away from home to share my passion with others.  I am blessed with a strong tribe, and a number of inspirational mentors throughout my life who have guided me to a place where I can share both their wisdom and my experiences with others.  It's my turn to pay it forward.
