What do you like about living in Skagit County? “I definitely like the people and the sense of community, and the pride everyone has in the valley. It’s a very special place that has natural beauty, great people, and a real community feel.”

When you were younger, what did you want to be? “I always thought I was going to be an attorney.”

What is the most spontaneous thing you have ever done? “We took the kids to Disneyland and didn’t tell them we booked a trip to Disneyland. We put them in the car, drove to the airport, and surprised them with Disney music on the radio at the airport.”

What is the farthest you have traveled? “I did a study exchange in South Africa for five weeks and we’ve been to China.”

What is a surprising fact about you? “I can be fairly introverted sometimes. I think in my job I have to be very extroverted, sometimes I can probably be a lot more introverted than most people think.”

What is your favorite food? “Mexican food. Fajitas.”

What is a positive we can take out of the global pandemic? “The ability to slow down and focus on the things that are really important in your life. It goes back to family and friends, those relationships are really at the end of the day the most important things you have.”
