Meet a Westsider:
Julie Sasinka

Profession/Occupation... co-owner of Mountain Mama Natural Foods.

What I like most about the Westside is... being so close to the mountains. The Westside is where all the history of this town is. I love the individual-style houses, established trees, and that “big business” hasn’t consumed it! ...yet!

If I could change anything about the Westside, it would be... that everyone took pride in the appearance of their homes.

A good movie I’ve seen recently is... “Fahrenheit 9/11.”

The worst advice I’ve ever gotten was... think with your head, not your heart.

If I could meet someone famous, I’d like to meet... Oprah Winfrey.

The next time I travel, I’m going to... the Pacific Northwest and Vancouver Island.

My favorite childhood memory is... spending summer with my grandparents, going to the beach or hanging out at the pool every day!

My favorite summer pastime is... playing at the pool or reading a good book in the sun.

Something good I’ve read is.. “Into the Wild,” by Erin Hunter.

My pet peeve is... low carb!

If I won the lottery, I’d... become a licensed naturopath and open a clinic for low income families.
