Because life is cool when you're a Lizard.

Welcome to the website. Why a home page you might ask? Well, I needed a place to put stuff for friends and family to see, so viola, here it is.

If you are looking for Liz's story and pictures of her twin pregnancy and the birth of her twins, Corinne and Kaitlyn, as well as the birth of her son Quinn:  please click here: Blog

This is Liz & Brian's webpage. We live in Marin County, California. I am a San Francisco & Marin Real Estate Broker Marin Real Estate Agent:  My Marin Real estate website is:

Brian is a Fireman for the San Francisco Fire Department. We both love outdoor activities: skiing, hiking, biking, and running. I lived in Mammoth for a few years, and would love a way to find my way back to the mountains full time.

We have 3 children.  Twins that were born extremely early at 26 weeks, after my water brok from an amnio at 17 weeks.  Sadly, our first born daughter Corinne Margaret, only lived a few hours and passed away in my arms.  Our surviving twin, who also weighed 1lb 10 ounces at birth, spent 4 long months in the NICU.  Our 3rd child was also a preemie, Quinn Edward was born at 34 weeks and spent a short 3 weeks in the NICU. Read their story on my Blog

We met skiing at Alpine Meadows, where he was a ski patroller - and NO, I didn't break a leg either!

I used to play Ultimate Frisbee really seriously, in fact, I started the UCSB Collegiate Women's Ultimate team (The Burning Skirts). We won Nationals in 1988 and went on to win the World Ultimate Frisbee Championships in Germany as the Condors the same year. I wish I could find the time to still play seriously, but my work gets in the way of that. I do still play winter league with My brother Gary is the real athlete in the family, and was 7th in the US Olympic Trials Marathon in 2000.


My Surviving twin daughter has a serious feeding disorder (as a result of her extreme prematurity, and I started using Shaklee Vitamins to help with her nutrition.  I liked their products so much I became a distributor.  If you are interested in hearing more about Shaklee products, Liz can offer you an on-line website to place your orders, 50% off your one-time membership fee of $20 and 50% off shipping charges all the time!  If you are interested in hearing more about Shaklee, click here to send Liz an email:  Tell me more about Shaklee
