Hello! I am a west coast girl recently returned to her rainy Pacific Northwest homeland, blogging about social and political issues, as well as the ups and downs of life in general. And dogs. I love history, yoga, animals, chocolate, dancing, the great outdoors, photography, writing and my amazing friends and family who are always there for me. I’m a UCLA grad who spent over four years doing federal advocacy and communications work in Washington DC and is now working on state policy in Olympia, Washington. 

FYI because some have asked: My nickname as a child was Duck Duck, or Ducky, because my adorable little sis Anya couldn’t say my actual name. Hence the blog’s title.
