I currently live and frolic in Coeur d’Alene Idaho and have since 1991. On the very day I moved there my car broke down and I literally met Tom, my husband of 25+ years, in a parking lot.
Three children, the ups and downs of marriage, a mutual love of the outdoors, and an ability to get past the insanity has kept us on our toes, but provided so much more!
I have had the privilege of being my own boss since 2008, which lets me celebrate the great outdoors (of which there is no shortage here), age semi-gracefully (not really, fighting it the whole way), include my children in the day to day operations, and advocate for organizations that encourage more people to choose to walk or ride instead of drive!
Some of my most fulfilling professional moments are when I help a small business owner find a new online avenue to promote their business and help them become walk/bike friendly.
Along with spending as much time as I can with my family and running my business; I am also: a Board Member for the North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation, a Board Member for the Idaho Walk Bike Alliance, and volunteer when I can to support active “transportation” in my community.
