I enjoy hiking, reading, cooking, baking and eating! My most time-consuming hobby is playing/practicing piano. I'm a member of the Berkeley Piano Club, and the Contra Costa Performing Arts Society; I recently performed Schubert's Moment Musicaux at the Berkeley Piano Club. LOTS of practicing necessary prior to that performance!
I have two beautiful daughters, Rachael and Hannah. They are the joy of my life! Rachael lives and works in Salt Lake City, UT; She is a hydrogeologist and works for a large consulting firm. Hannah is a Chico grad (psychology) and is now finishing her last year of graduate school at JFK University in Pleasant Hill.
