- I enjoy spending time with my family. My youngest son is a sophomore in college, and my two older kids are out of college and finding their way as young adults in post-pandemic world. My husband, Andy, is a native Californian who has embraced Montana. Now that the house is emplty of children, my husband and I are able to find the time to walk more and explore our beautiful city. Hiking the adjacent open spaces is a favorite, with the Barmeyer property at the top of the list. Less kids at home also means I now have the time to be in a book club, which has been so much fun. But in general, City Council and my work take much of my time.
