I was born at Bangkok Christian Hospital in 1974 and lived in Northeast Thailand until I was eleven, with time in Chiang Mai for boarding school. Then it was upstate New York, a six-month stop in Pennsylvania, and then San Diego for the next two decades. Now I live in Montana--long winter, with a beautiful summer sandwiched between the darker seasons. As I've announced several times while introducing topics, I work as an accreditation coordinator, telecommuting for a small school in San Diego. I also substitute in the local school district. With husband, two girls, jobs, church, and now Ricochet, my life is rich and busy.
