PASSIONS
"BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD" - mAHATMA GANDI

I try my best to 'walk the walk' and 'be the change' in all I do as a citizen, parent, educator
... and now athlete. 



FAMILY.

Although my obsesison with Stand Up Paddling is obvious, my top priority is my family.  My home life includes my husband Scott of 25 years and three children: Lauren at Cal Berkeley, Shannon at Tulane U., and Nathan at Laguna Beach High School. They make my life rich and complete and I am blessed to have each of them in my life.  



EDUCATION.

Learning/Education has been a constant in my life.  My parents are teachers, I have degrees from Cal Poly & UCLA, I have worked in as a teacher, a school tech. specialist, a program director at an educational non-profit, and beginning four years ago, as an Educational Consultant/ College Advisor in my own practice. I truly believe that through education we can improve lives and our world on so many levels. As a Board Member for a non-profit building Secondary Schools in Tanzania, I see the empowerment of Masaii villages, bringing in clean water, improving health, providing jobs and a building a stronger future.




OCEAN/ENVIRONMENT.

We can no longer ignore the issues of our Earth. As caretakers of our beautiful yet fragile planet, we need to step up and do our part to stop & reverse the damage we've been doing. The special importance of the water that covers 75% of the earth is finally getting the attention if deserves.
