I am a native of the Seattle area married for 39 years to a wonderful man who emigrated from Norway with his family when he was 14. I have two amazing adult children who have amazing families. Family is a priority for all of us. Like most people, as individuals and as a close team, we have all faced ups and downs in life and work and grown as a family as a result of the support that comes through open communication and respect for one another.I enjoy any form of creativity including art quilt design, interior design, writing, music and landscaping. I even apprenticed as an artist blacksmith for several months with my husband! This has provided a wonderful balance for me during the most stressful times as an executive.We enjoy travelling, learning about and learning from other cultures and hope to do much more of that!We love to be outdoors kayaking, hiking and exploring the Sound.
