Hiker, backpacker, climber, and mother of two grown children whom she is quite proud of. Has the weird talent of being able to speak backwards, but has yet to find a way to capitalize on it. Used to get picked last for team sports in school until the day she surprised everyone (including herself) by hitting the ball out of the park and bringing her teammates in to win the game. Has six cats and has been known to go out in public completely covered in cat fur. Moved to sunny California 5 years ago (doesn't do winter anymore) and learned very quickly to never, ever kick a cactus.
