My Story

While growing up, my parents ran a community theater company... which meant I often bossed my classmates around on the playground. 

 

The story goes like this... when I was 3, I would sit at the table my parents had their meetings - and I would raise my hand until they would call on me.   I would then say "I think

Californ-ja."  It was the biggest word I knew at the time (pronunciation be damned) and I wanted to be important.  My parents kindly obliged... and they kind of never stopped. 

 

So now I have a blog and a website.

I am currently living in Washington and I am the Education & Outreach Coordinator for Edmonds Center for the Arts and I'm pretty ecstatic about it.  My adorable husband, Ed, and I just arrived in April 2019 and we are loving the exploration of our new home.

 

I hope you enjoy my stories and poems and things.  But if you don't - that's cool too - just maybe don't tell me.
