Like a lot of people who grew up on the west coast, I live for hours spent outside. Running, hiking, and paddle boarding fill those hours, and I am always looking for ways to explore the local trails and rivers. Snowshoeing was a new one last year! I also enjoy travelling, especially internationally, and immersing in different cultures. Evenings and weekends with my two kids, our time is brimming with books, puzzles, and endless crafts - when I can get them off the internet, that is.
