Central Sierra Nevada Mtns. in Northern California: Mi Wuk Village
I'm a college grad (Geography) who followed her passion, studied geography, never used it professionally, but rather followed a career as a stay a home mom. Very rewarding!
Interests: golf, off-roading, camping, traveling, skiing, my interests are quite broad: stamping, reading (historical fiction, british novels), knitting. i'll also admit that my favorite singers are perry como (since i was a kid) and john denver and i love musical theater.
