Born in Toronto Canada, my family moved to California when I was young. After graduating from high school, I joined the USAF. I served for four years as an Air Traffic Controller in Columbus Ohio and Alexandria Louisiana. My husband (43 years!) and I moved to Albuquerque New Mexico shortly after that for his job. I was hired by the FAA in 1981 and we spent 34 years in various locations in California, Idaho and Texas. My husband and I became avid birders when we lived in Boise Idaho. We opened a wild bird feeding store in 1995 in Kingwood. My husband and I both participate as volunteers each year at Galveston Islands birding festival, FeatherFest. I began taking ceramics classes in 1998 at Kingwood College, moving to Glassell. I continue to attend Glassell and work at my home studio. We have no children…but do herd cats!
