Kathy Milks - I Wonder If He Even Knows I'm Here

My name is Kathleen (Kathy) Milks.  I am a self-employed massage therapist and also work part time as a massage therapist for UW athletics.  A couple of years ago I took my hobby of many years, photography,  and created Dynamic Endeavors Photography.   I spend most of my free time wandering and exploring our many incredible public lands, capturing those things that catch my eye.
