|Hello, my name is Orest Lechnowsky, and you have been looking at my web pages. By profession, I'm a licensed Civil Engineer. At my day job, I administer and inspect the construction of transportation facilities for the state of Iowa. My other interests are legion and varied. Among them are music, travel, making things, bicycling, cooking, gardening, ethnology, dance...etc.||This is my lovely wife, Cheryl. I'm a lucky guy, and I know it. Cheryl is my best friend. She also happens to be a great wife. She is a Physical Therapist. She specializes in spinal chord injuries, and she is very good at what she does (I think she is one of the best....but I'm biased). Some of her other interests include bicycling, music, dance, gardening, fishing and soccer.|
|We have two wonderful sons, Stefan and Andre. They are 8 months apart in age. Stefan (on the left) is older. We adopted them both from an orphanage in Ukraine in 2000. Prior to being adopted, they were not siblings. Now they are inseperable. Click here to read the adoption story.||This is our great dog Tikka.
