I moved here with my sweetie, Jim, and two daughters in 2003. We lived in the country in Orange County until this year, raised our daughters, cashmere goats, chickens, and various and sundry other critters. Had a great time, but now the daughters are grown, we are down to two cats, and are ready for city life. I work for the Guardian ad Litem Program, recruiting, training and supervising volunteers to represent foster children in court. I am passionate about justice for all, including children.

For fun I enjoy singing, camping, reading, road trips and going to movies. I love Durham, coffee, going to the pool, and my cohousing buddies, not necessarily in that order.
