For down time, I like to read, cook, or watch Netflix! I have a five year old yellow Lab Retriever named Data (from the TV show Star Trek), and spend lots of time with him when at home.
Outside of work, I love to hike, and help coach the Enumclaw High School Colorguard team, but most of my time is spent reading with my dog next to me at home!
I would highly recommend reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. An easy read, but definitely tugs at the heart strings, especially the ending.
Currently, I am reading the 8th book in the series The Chonicles of Nick. Very good book if you enjoy fictional reads.
