I have lived in Issaquah since 1986, after 17 years in Santa Fe, New Mexico. My husband, John, daughter Maya, and son David also live in the Seattle area. After 37 years as a Middle School teacher with the Snoqualmie Public School District, I retired in 2012. Presently, I volunteer with Sound Generations, Allied Arts Foundation, TELOS Bellevue College. I also participate with The City of Issaquah Parks and Recreation Program at the Julius Boehm Pool. Community service has been my life time engagement.
