Tell us about this picture of your ride, it's amazing!
My husband and I are headed to the grocery store on our 80 pound tandem. My husband took it.
You've done fascinating advocacy work, what were you working on?
I lead a King County wide nail salon project to help nail technicians reduce their chemical exposures. We focused on encouraging them to use safer chemicals and better ventilation to improve their long-term health outcomes.
I collaborated with nail salon projects in New York, California and Boston.
1.5 years ago I retired. I currently ride my bike, XC Ski, hike and travel frequently as well as volunteer with a national organization dedicated to reducing toxic waste and chemical exposures by encouraging the development and use of safer chemicals.
What Vespertine items keeps you glowing?
I love my stylish Vesperine suit jacket that keeps me safe in traffic with its high visibility orange for day riding and reflective accents for night riding.
