I am Mischelle, a native Oregonian, who spends my time between Portland Oregon and Vancouver BC.

My dad and mom were my heroes because of the way they loved and accepted us (faults and all) and shared the fun parts of themselves with us. My college degree is in Psychology. It prepared me for nothing except how to live cheaply and how to meet people at parties.

I opened a bookkeeping business in 1999 because I needed something else to do besides work for a woman who hated people.

I have jumped out of a perfectly good airplane to go skydiving - I had to wonder as I was stepping off the wing why I did that though, because on the way down I had about a microsecond to think about how fast I was plummeting myself toward immovable objects. I was terrified, but fascinated at the same time. I felt the same way about taking that first scuba dive in Mexico and going down 105 feet to the absolutely most amazing wonders that my eyes had ever seen.
