Ingrid was born and raised in Germany and graduated from the Pestalozzi School in Bruchsal. She has travelled extensively, including to Asia, the Middle East, Africa and South America. Ingrid loves different cultures and always studies cultures before her travels to better understand ways of life in her destination spot. Ingrid raised two children and is very involved with the lives of my nine Grandchildren, several of whom speak German fluently. During her work for the Legislative sessions between 1971 to 1979, she taught many students who came to the Capitol Building in Olympia about our state government. Ingrid studied Art in Germany, has had several exhibitions in Germany and loves to use art whenever she teaches children. She has a Master and Teaching degree in Reiki and loves being around children.
