Fun Facts

My favorite animal is really any animal.  I'm a true animal lover.  Watching a pair of screech owls raise their owlets in our backyard owl house the last few years has been a real treat!

My favorite outdoor activity is either being at an uncrowded beach, hiking in the woods, or sitting outside watching the birds at my backyard bird feeders on a cool, fall morning.

I love “live” music at a local venue, mostly because of the energy of the crowd and experience of being part of something so powerful and moving.

Self-care for me is reading a book with my 2 dogs and cat snuggled close by.

My favorite Austin activities are being outside on a nature trail, preferably w/my 2 pups...Or sitting on an outdoor patio with friends, enjoying some yummy Austin food.

I feel calm and content when listening to a babbling brook or ocean waves.
