Heidi stays active and takes advantage of the Pacific Northwest’s outdoor activities, including boating, camping, and skiing. She enjoys the art of papercraft and sending handmade cards to friends, and also holds a black belt in Taekwondo. When she’s not busy with the above, you can find her tucked into a good book with her dog, Muggsy, close by.
