I'm Tawna, and I'm a fourth-Generation Oregonian who's lived and worked in Bend since 1997. I love hiking, kayaking, snowshoeing, and standup paddleboarding – especially with my dog, Bindi. When I'm not promoting Bend tourism, I stay plenty busy devoting time to my other job as a published author writing quirky romantic comedies.
I love roaming the globe and welcome any opportunity to shoulder my pack and venture to new countries. I have a menagerie of ill-behaved but beloved pets including cats, a dog, fish, and even a salamander.
Bindi is my two-year-old Australian Kelpie (which is pretty much a herding dog on crack) and she's my favorite hiking companion.
