Attending Washington State University, I enrolled in the communications program and aspired to being a photojournalist. Somehow life got in the way and I graduated from Central Washington University with accounting and economics degrees and have been in the finance field ever since. I am a Certified Public Accountant and MBA. I have lived throughout the country in eleven states, thirty towns and cities, and have traveled through all fifty states. I enjoy writing about events in my life with an emphasis on life in North Idaho.
