Off-Day ActivityPhotography, kayaking, camping, reading, writing, and sleeping!

I have participated in Triathlons since my sister (aka the human torpedo) inspired me during a YMCA Camp Triathlon in 2008. Since then, I relearned how to swim after a 35 year hiatus--due to near drowning. I have even overcome my fear of wearing a wetsuit--thanks to BlueSeventy's supple material (I had another brand, but had to sell it after a disastrous test run). As a triathlete with asthma, I have had to temper my excitement and focus on doing Sprint, Olympic, and 2023 my first full 70.3 in Oregon (I did Des Moines 70.3, or rather, 67.4, in 2022--it was shortened due to severe storms). I will be sporting my sleeveless BlueSeventy wetsuit with pride and no fear!!!

I am a professional historian, professor, owner of Dancing Loon Historical Consulting, LLC (indigenous land and sovereignty issues, primarily), and author of five books with more on the way.

I love to travel, spend time dedicated to photography and being outside camping, cycling, carving, kayaking, walking, or just being--appreciating sounds and sights of this beautiful world.

My husband is an amazingly talented woodworker, carver, and full-time botanist who really wants to retire, and I am a gramma two two beautiful and very busy boys.
