I relocated to Portland in 2006 from Olympia, Washington. I enjoy the many outdoor activities the Pacific Northwest has to offer. On a free weekend, I can often be seen hiking in the Columbia Gorge with my husband Zach, and our two dogs. I do not have children yet, but love to spoil my four nieces and nephews.
