Just for Fun
Where do you currently live and what’s something you love about the area?
Living in West Seattle, I have really enjoyed kayaking, weather permitted! I also love playing with dirt in my garden and waking up to the sounds of the ferry boat fog horns in the morning along with the occasional stroll on beautiful Alki Beach.

What is your favorite local restaurant and dish of choice? I love Spud’s Fish and Chips on Alki and love pretty much any and everything on the menu, but mostly the cod…mmmmm.

What is something most people don’t know about you? I love classic jazz music, movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood, and I have a 1963 Golden Hawk Stuedebaker.

What do you enjoy most about working at City Light? City Light’s commitment to conservation, staff development and race and social justice initiatives really resonated with me and attracted me to the utility initially. Being a part of the City Light family for two years now, I have loved the flexible work hours, my management’s support and the overall satisfaction I get from delivering creative solutions for our customers.
