I grew up on a cattle ranch in Northern Idaho surrounded by a family full of people who were great at making stuff from scratch. I learned early how much fun it was to be an industrious 'SheGyver' who could make something artful and useful out of disparate ingredients. Soapmaking had an obvious allure.
I have been creating unique cold-process soaps since the early 1990s. I founded Seattle Sundries about ten years later, after having spent a number of happy years teaching middle school ESL to kids from all over the world. I live in Seattle with my husband, three children and our dog Murdoch. I like to create lots of other things too: music; smart, self-reliant kids; a beautiful, edible landscape; and great food.
