About Me

Growing up in Southern California, I dreamed of the day I would leave the city and venture into the wild. As soon as I completed grad school I moved to Durango, Colorado and started a life of mountains, fresh air, and eventually motherhood. After 20 years of Rocky Mountain High, I left Colorado for the Big Island of Hawaii in what I consider ‘the perfect storm’ of life circumstances.

That turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. In Hawaii I found my  true self, started writing, and began a life free of other’s expectations.

Today, I run a small non-profit dedicated to sharing Aloha with visitors to Hawaii Island who experience adversities. I also write stories about island travel, food and dining, human interest, and arts and entertainment.

I look forward to sharing some of these stories with you in my blog. I encourage you to contact me with any comments, or just to introduce yourself and say ‘Aloha.’

Mahalo nui loa!
