I ran my first marathon a week before my youngest daughter turned one. Never in her memory has there been a time when I didn’t dress primarily in spandex, consume copious amounts of gels and energy chews, or spend the dark early hours of a Saturday morning out on a run. It was after one of these long runs that I returned to find Ali, who was three at the time, on her stomach rolling back and forth over a foam roller. When I asked what she was doing she simply said, “Playing mommy.” In her eyes, this is ...

One of the reasons I pursued a career in community forestry is because I like trees and people. They both fascinate and amaze me. The latter more so now-a-days that I am working for a municipality. I've been astounded and a bit bewildered at the dismay and disappointment from citizens, co-workers and acquaintances alike regarding this year's Christmas tree at City Hall. Since I am a public servant and feel accountable for my actions as such, please allow me to shed some light on why we have such a unique tree.

In fact, women make up roughly half of all medical, law and accounting students, three professions that lead to high-paying and influential careers.
