My husband, Andrew, is a clinical pychologist who recently retired from University of Califirnia San Francisco Medical Center's Cancer Center, and is now seeing clients one day a week at our local hosppital's oncology center. He is passionate about his work and also spends time doing carpentry and has much of our home's woodworking. We both help raise our 17 year old son, Michael who is a Junior in high school. OUr daughter, Caitlin, is at the UC-Santa Barbara in her Junior year studying psychology. I am working part time as a licensed clinical social worker in this area and have done medical social work for 35 yrs. My husband and I bike daily and hike in the area hills and Sierra Nevada Mountains which are 45 minutes away. We also have a beautiful lake front cabin at Donner Lake near Lake Tahoe where we ski in the winter and swim and relax in the summer time. We are honest, decent people and very proud of our children and the way they are turnung out. They have had a goos foundation and are growing into moral, generous, considerate young adults.
