I grew up on a wheat farm in south eastern Washington state (2 miles from Idaho). I received my BA from Washington State University in Education and Learning Resources (Library and Media Studies). My first job was as an itinerant (traveling) Learning Resources Specialist for two elementary schools (primary and middle) about 50 miles from Canada. I met and married my husband in that area. We moved to CA, raised our twin sons who will be graduating with their BA's this spring. We are caregivers for my 93-year- old mother-in-law. My lifelong dream has been to get a Masters in Library (and now Information) Science.
