Life & Love


Inspired By: Grammy Doc, grandmother

“My maternal grandma is this unapologetic aesthete. She was a glamazon who’d pop into our tiny logging town every few months in her tailored Armani, Ferragamos, and constantly upgraded convertible Mustang. When my grandfather, a civil engineer, quit his job building missiles in the ’60s, she made the dough and he took care of the kid (my mom). She got her PhD, wrote chapters in books, ran a department at the University of Washington Dental School and taught her way through an endless parade of butt-slapping chauvinist academics. She refused to be called grandma (we called her grammy doc, because of her PhD), wouldn’t pick up a knitting needle, and at age 100, she cast her ballot for Hillary.”
