"Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace." Amelia Earhart

I live in the Columbia River Gorge, on the east side of Cascade mountains, seeing daily the craggy beauty of Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier.

Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." As a young adolescent during the Viet Nam war, I saw the power of activism and it has shaped my life and career choices. 

I am a passionate educator with a commitment to transforming lives through education and career development. This involves strategic planning, innovation and partnerships that increase access to community college/university, career opportunities and economic mobility.

Cooking, reading, photography, gardening and hiking are some of my hobbies.
