I was raised in Ohio and moved to Minneapolis in 1994 when my husband became the Director of Forestry for the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.  We have three adult children, all of whom graduated from Southwest High School in Minneapolis.  

Ralph III, my oldest, teaches a 4th/5th grade Montessori class at Armatage Montessori School in Minneapolis.  We used to teach on the same team at Armatage and still meet every week for brunch to compare

teaching experiences and ideas.  Marty is a psychiatrist for Gundersen Health System. He and his wife live in La Crosse, Wisconsin and are expecting their first child in October 2017.  Mary has an illustration degree from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, and a graduate degree from Tisch School of the Arts at NYU in costume design.  She and her husband live in La Jolla, California with my two grand-pugs, Weezy and Sophie.  Weezy is a tripod and
half-sister to my pug.  Mary and Alex are expecting their first baby the end of August 2017.

Since my children are currently scattered, I fill my nurturing needs with Bogart (pug) and Millie (dachshund/terrier mix).  I really love animals and would probably have a lot more, but my husband keeps me from becoming an "animal hoarder", as he likes to put it!  I also love to read, scrapbook, stamp, cook, sew and play the piano.
