Outside the Office
Time with family and travelling for both work and play creates wonderful new memories. Regular trips to the Oregon Coast and exploring a new city in the U.S. or abroad offer some of the best medicine. The quiet time of gardening and reading supports the other side of life. Everyone needs balance.
