Your adventure starts...where? I've always dreamed of going to Paris to see the historical architecture. The colors look so vibrant and I want to walk along the Seine River and cross all the bridges.

A great moment for you: Crossing the finish line of the Portland Marathon. It was my first marathon and we picked Portland because we love Oregon. I ran with my husband, Kevin, and two friends and we all crossed the finish line together. It was a downpour during part of the race and I loved that, too! After the race, we drove to the coast and ate pizza and it was the... most...amazing....meal of my life!

Your passions outside of work: I adore being a Mom but I'm still very much myself (an important distinction). I love to be outside! I bike and hike and snowboard, and I love to hike the same trail where I snowboarded or biked. If I'm outside I'm usually happy, even if I'm just watching the birds (I had Lasik surgery last year and now I can SEE them).

A quote that inspires you: "Anyone who feels there's only fun in the sun has never danced in the rain." – Unknown

Why I live in Utah: I'm half mountain girl/half desert girl so living here is my own nirvana. My friends used to call me "Hippie-Kiyay" because they said I was part hippie and part cowgirl. Whatever, I'm just me...

Best place I've lived: Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. I spent a summer working for a lodge company there and I was in heaven. It's beyond beautiful and it was a great place to do some serious soul searching.

First job: I was a "hostess with the mostest" at an Italian restaurant called Robintino's. They've been in business since the early 1960ss and it's still going strong. It was a bit of a dive back then, but I think/hope they've made some improvements since.
