I attended PCC after Muir and moved south to San Diego to attend SDSU where I majored in Spanish. I met my honey my last year of college and have been married for 33 years. I have three handsome sons, Eric(40), Nathan (28) and Andrew (27) and 1 step-grandson, Joe (22). I returned to school in '87 to get my teaching credential and masters and have been teaching Spanish for the last 20 years in both middle and high school in San Diego. I LOVE to travel, hang out with family and friends, and play in my garden. I'm looking forward to reconnecting at the 40th!

It's wonderful to see everyone's photo, and read the biographies. What great lives we've been living!
After Muir I went to PCC, then transferred to City College of San Francisco. I eventually went to Humboldt State, and ultimately became an R.N. in New York in 1984.
I've traveled to India several times to study yoga, and volunteered as a nurse while there.
I love my family and friends who all live far and wide, which gives me the good fortune to travel and see them! I currently live in Florida near my mother who is great company, and other family that also live near by. I hope to attend the next (and my first) John Muir Reunion.. 2020..Golden!

Thanks again,

Have 20 acres with our own pasture fed cattle, raise chickens and eat lots of organic eggs, have two donkeys keeping down the brush, and four dogs. Best of all, we have 6 children; three by birth, three by adoption. Our two youngest Chinese daughters are still at home where I school them. Active in our church and in the adoption community. My priority outside our family life is promoting adoption. Hope to be informed of the next reunion, was only at the 20th which I enjoyed.
