Tina Svarenhas spent most of her life living in the Missoula and Bitterroot Valleys. She is an active participant in community theater in her home of Stevensville. Together with her husband, son and dog she spends as much time as possible hiking, rafting, camping and taking in all of Montana’s breathtaking landscapes.
