Rev. Phil Graf
Phil grew up in New York – The Stony Brook School – and now lives in Oxnard, CA. He enjoys playing sports in his free time… when his aging body allows him to. If he could go anywhere in the world he would either travel to New Zealand for the first time or return to Cinque Terre, Italy.
Dr. Doug Posey
Doug was born in Dearborn, Michigan, but feels like a California native, having lived there from the age of 2. He now lives in Thousand Oaks, CA. In his free time, he enjoys dining, traveling, shopping with his wife Wendi, working out, and listening to Audible books and podcasts. When he asked Wendi where she would like to go if given the chance, she said, “Alaskan cruise.” Okay.
Glenn lives in Ventura County which is where she grew up. She enjoys reading, secondhand bookshops, minimalism, and the pursuit of sustainability. She’s not well-traveled and would be interested in going almost anywhere if she could.
A Seattle native, Rachael lived in both Ukraine and Argentina before returning to Seattle with her husband. She enjoys walking through outdoor markets anywhere in the world, exploring new places, getting to know people from difference cultures, and can’t say no to a good cup of coffee – even better if enjoyed with good company! She would either return to Europe or get to know Central Asia if given the chance.
