I am a new transplant to Portland and am enjoying my time exploring the vast number of fantastic opportunities both indoor and outdoor! I have a passion for rock climbing, particularly bouldering. I also love to run (favorite distance: six miles), swim, and snowboard. I hope to carve out time again soon! My other hobbies include quilting, reading, and enjoying time with friends (with great food and wine). My earlier degrees are from University of Washington, including a BA in linguistics. I love to travel and study new languages - I've studied over 4 different languages.
