PersonalAfter working 23 years with Morgan Stanley, I decided to follow my daughter and move up to Spokane, WA with my 19 year old kitty cat, Cheyenne. I’ve spent all of my life in Southern California between LA, Orange County, and San Diego. It is a big change, but I am so excited for the four seasons and snow!
