Ms. Kris Duggan, nee McCurdy, lives in Lancaster, California, with her spouse. Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, she took to life in the southern California desert like a fish out of water — literally, thanks to the recent punishing drought that depleted groundwater supplies and threatened municipal water systems in the region.
Ms. Duggan doesn’t let that get to her. When she’s not at work, she enjoys spending time outdoors in the beautiful San Gabriel and Sierra Nevada mountains. Occasionally, she heads to the coast. No word on whether she’s taken up surfing like a true Californian yet!
