My husband and I have been married for 38 years, and have 4 children. My husband has a passion for family, reading, learning and sports. I have a passion for family, birds, writing, photography and dancing. We have been privileged to travel to Mexico, Italy, Germany, Nicaragua, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Vancouver Island and Victoria, Belize, Aruba and many states in the US, including Hawaii and Alaska. To keep the international flavor in our home, we hosted exchange students (2 German, 2 Japanese, 2 Koreans, and 1 Colombian). We currently own 2 Subway stores in Portland, OR, and 4 vacation rentals in Packwood, WA. We hope to build 1 or 2 additional houses in Packwood, retire, move and run the vacation rentals on location. Until then, we will continue to run our stores and vacation rentals from Portland, enjoy our family, friends . . . and keep on dancing!
