Favorite place to unplug/recharge… In the mountains…hiking, skiing, or exploring…surrounded by the trees and birds.

Totem animal… The Crow…the power of sight, transformation, and connection with life’s magic.

Worst habit… Biting my nails when I’m stressed…

Best habit… Putting myself in someone else’s shoes…listening and problem-solving.

Secret hidden talent… Having a green thumb…gardening and creating environments for pollinators to thrive.

Would post a billboard saying… I am thankful for today, I am grateful for today, I’m alive.
