For three decades Gretchen has lived along Washington's I-5 corridor - Olympia, Vancouver, and now, a tiny town north of Everett. Pretty much, everywhere but Seattle! She loves visiting the city, but her heart is most at home along the coast or near the forest.
Gretchen married an Oregonian (but quickly turned him into a Washingtonian) and together they're raising four Pacific Northwest-loving kids. She will often be found reading a captivating novel, eating fancy grilled cheese, and wearing Birkenstocks. Because yes, she's THAT Pacific Northwest.
