I love to walk in nature. Favorite local walks are in the gardens of Bayou Bend and the trails at the Houston Arboretum. I enjoy tent camping, especially in the Davis Mountains of west Texas. A favorite place I have traveled is the Oregon Coast, where I enjoyed spotting whales, exploring tide pools, and watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. My library card gets a workout, and I also like to browse for book suggestions at Brazos Bookstore. Recent reads are The Stationery Shop by Marjan Kamali, and Saint X by Alexis Schaitkin. Some things people may not know about me is I grew up in the Gulfgate mall area of Houston near Telephone Road, I volunteered at the Houston Zoo as a teenager, and I’m a Scout leader and mom. I am excited to join cohousing to be part of building community, to learn from others, and to share what I can.
