I love being outside- hiking, biking, or just exploring around with our kids. I have an oil painting practice that is very life-giving and I also spend time doing other creative projects. As a family we enjoy traveling, especially to the Philadelphia area where we lived for many years


I am married to Scott Huston and we have two daughters: Sabine and Emi June who are both EMES students

Community involvement

I helped organize Harrisonburg's first Cyclovia, a family-friendly bike event in Park View in 2018, and am involved in other community bike work. I also volunteer for the Harrisonburg International Festival as the coordinator of the childrens' area, Worlds of Play.
