Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

Live, love, laugh, cry, work, sweat, play. Not in equal parts. I
think that summarizes it.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a private practice in naturopathic medicine.
Outside of my work, I enjoy keeping fit, cooking, making a
difference in the world, and getting out into the world so it can
make a difference on me.
I meditate regularly. I find I am calmer and my life is richer when
I have a regular practice.

I geek out periodically. My latest: lactofermentation. I've
fermented a couple batches of mixed veggies to give them a mild
tangy flavor and to preserve them. It makes for one of the best
garnishes ever. Currently there is a jar of sauerkraut bubbling
away on my dining room table. Next on deck: hot peppers and then

A wide variety of books. The Ocean at the End of the Lane was a
great adult fairy tale, as was the Golem and the Jinni, and the
Snow Child. The Language of Flowers brought a tear to my eye. The
Sound of Heartbeats brought many. It's one of my favorite books of
all time. I'm not a woos. I'm currently reading, At Home, by Bill
Bryson. Do you know where the reference to "board" of the term
"room and board" came from? I didn't. In early England, while
people were kind of nomadic, they would place a board across their
laps to eat food from. Now I think that term is super cool.
Sons of Anarchy is the current series on Netflix I'm addicted
Yes, music, I like it. Lots of different kinds of it.
I love exploring new places to eat and new foods. I thoroughly
enjoy Thai, Korean, Sushi, Pho, Chicago or Napolitan style pizzas,
mexican (have you been to the little taco trailer next to the Home
Depot on North Aurora? some of the best Mexican food in Seattle for
sure!), Indian, and Ethiopian. If I haven't eaten a particular
food, I'd most likely be up for trying it. Tripe didn't go over so
well, nor did liver, but I'd be willing to give them another go.
Oh, I've become addicted to Vegemite with butter on toast in the

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Taking it easy, either out with friends enjoying good food and
drink, or staying at home reading a book or watching a movie. I
hate giving cliché answers, but it's true.
