Three Minutes with Adelaide Zumwalt

When and why did you move to Hermiston?

We moved from Anchorage, Alaska to Hermiston in 2015 to get out of the cold and be closer to family. Most of my family lives in the Portland area but we didn’t want that kind of commute so we decided to job hunt in smaller towns.

What is your favorite place to eat in Hermiston?

Walker’s Farm Kitchen. Hands down.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Hang out with my family and get outside hiking or camping.

What surprises you about Hermiston?

Everyone is so friendly and welcoming.

What was the last book you read?

A Higher Loyalty by James Comey

What app or website do you use most often?

Pinterest or Reddit.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

I would backpack the PCT or Appalachians.

What is the funniest thing that’s happened to you?

When we had our first child we were so sleep deprived that after dropping her off at daycare we realized I had forgotten my work shoes and would be stuck in snow boots all day and Jacob had forgotten his work shirt (he was just wearing his undershirt under his snow jacket). We just looked at each other and thought “what has happened to us?!”

What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?

Get back into running.

What is your proudest accomplishment?

My children.
