I grew up in a family of 8 children on a mini farm of sorts in the Bay Area of California where we raised chickens, rabbits, ponies, and horses. I spent my free time riding ponies, playing softball, cheerleading, and dancing. As a result, I feel right at home here at Diamond Ranch!
I am the proud mom of 4 amazing adolescent daughters. Together we enjoy many outdoor activities that usually include some combination of sunshine, water, and sand…whitewater rafting, boating, wakeboarding, wake surfing, hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, stand-up paddleboarding, surfing, and laying out on the beach. We will make the occasional exception to go skiing or snowboarding, but only when the sun is shining! Living in Southern Utah for the last 13 years has made all of this possible.
I am an eclectic artist of sorts…I love upcycling furniture, woodworking, building with power tools, spray painting, painting, drawing, watercolor, and interior design. I have a voracious appetite for learning and growth and as a result, I am an avid reader and lover of great literature.
