Living in Anacortes and enjoying my home, husband, children and grandchildren fills a major portion of my life. I am involved in a genealogy society and am working on my family tree. Finding treasures in antique shops and garage sales is always exciting. I have season tickets to several theaters and am always amazed at our local talent. Cooking is another one of my passions; something I enjoy especially now that I have more time to prepare and try interesting recipes. I don't know how to cook for two, so I often have guests at my dinner table. I need an environment that fills my many interests.
Joining SI Fidalgo Island has given me the opportunity to explore all my many interests and passions. I have held leadership roles and get to work with women who are committed to meaningful goals in our community and world. The variety of projects and events that we have chosen gives me the chance to work with young people as well as seniors. There is nothing more rewarding than making a difference by helping others. And last but not least, I get to use my cooking skills all the time. What else could one ask for?"
