Woven into my story is many instances of mountain biking, reading, and family history. I love getting on two wheels and cranking up a mountain to see the view, and then flying back down it. Thus far the children all seem to be developing a similar desire (of their own accord) in jumping on two wheels, although to date they are fans of paved trails.
I’ve always loved reading and have really enjoyed reading with the kids the last couple years, whether it is of the Dr. Seuss variety or chapter books like the Chronicles of Narnia.
You know how in school kids always say “I’ll never need to use this,” especially in regards to math? Well, I actually do. I’ve always loved looking at the stats in sports ever since John Stockton set the NBA record for assists, so at a certain point I decided to work with “stats” for a living. I’ve worked as an analyst for medical device companies and in the finance industry. I find it thrilling to discover something interesting in the numbers, then “telling the story” of the numbers to help change the way companies do business.
