I graduated from Portland State University with a BA Degree in Business Admin/Liberal Arts and was active in passing the law Measure 58 in the early ‘90’s opening the birth records for adoptees to allow them to be able to obtain their original birth certificate in the State of Oregon.  This allowed me to meet my Birth Mother, my half sister and brother.

I am married to Doug Steinke since 1995 with our Son Tanner Steinke.  Tanner is with his new family now in Montana with four young children. Doug and I live out past Sandy, OR on a 10 acre parcel of old growth timber that we developed in 1992 and it is our Garden of Eden.
