In 1979, I visioned I was to have a guest house in Jamaica for retirement. I came looking in 1994 and met Toney--we married in 1996 and raised two awesome sons in Philadelphia, then built the villa. I'm publishing a book about this 'fairy tale' called "Loving to be WE." I was raised on a farm in Kansas, was Deputy Director of Mental Health in Philadelphia, then co-founder and director of a university-based multicultural training and research institute. I now am a writer and Editor of FunTimes Magazine celebrating the African and Caribbean Diaspora. I'm a certified Holistic Cancer Education Counselor (having helped my body rebalance and overcome a stage 4 lung cancer diagnosis in three months!) I enjoy meeting people and showing them around Jamaica--talking about the culture and history; traveling; writing and keeping up on healthy living, politics and current events. I am blessed to have an amazing, loving husband, and to be living my dream life! I look forward to meeting you! Soon come....
