I've traveled inner and outer worlds: sky, earth, and beneath the sea. I go wherever my curiosity takes me. "Discover" is one of my favorite words.

For years I lived in the air, flying hot-air balloons, airplanes, seaplanes, and helicopters. Now I've come down to earth, bringing to life a desire to write.

I tend to look forward instead of back, but I've included links to two older articles about my 2008 Pacific Crest Trail hike (solo, Mexico to Canada) as well as a link to Aviation for Women about my early work in the industry.
