Backpacking the Point Reyes National Seashore

What’s your favorite thing to do in your spare time?

I love to spend time with my family and friends, go to the beach, attend a concert or show, and camp/hike in places miles away from cell service!
 

If you weren’t a provider, what would you be?

I love music. I played clarinet growing up and loved being part of marching and concert bands. I think if I had gone a different direction, it would have involved music production.

Enjoying a morning at the beach with her family

However, I have never regretted choosing to be a Registered Nurse and Nurse Practitioner. I enjoy what I do!
 

If you won lotto, what would be the first thing you do with the money?

I would plan a trip with each of my family members to a dream destination of their choice!
 

Do you have a favorite TV show?

I love The Great British Bake-Off and The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix.
 

Finding peace and solitude at Mammoth Lakes

Do you have a favorite vacation destination?

I have visited Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada, twice – once in the summer to sightsee and hike, and once in the winter to ski. I cannot pick my favorite season! It is a stunning, adventurous, friendly, and special place. One of my favorite parts about Banff is the easy access for all ages and abilities to experience the beauty of nature. I also love visiting Mammoth Lakes in California.
