I am an active 75 year old Euro American female (mostly Celtic ancestors). I bought my house in 2009, a 3 bedroom 1920 colonial in the City of Rochester in a racially diverse community called the 19th Ward (Website hidden by Airbnb) located in the SW quadrant of the City. I work out 5 times a week with Pilates at a health club and I walk. I am a freelance grantwriter and have a home office. I work with several nonprofits serving diverse populations: e.g., exoffenders; Latinx; low income families; Native American cultural programs for region. I like getting people connected: I formed the Winbourne United Neighbors block club the first year I moved here and did the same in my last city neighborhood. I organized a monthly freelance grantwriters event to interrupt the isolation of freelancers. I have a large family, most of who live here and we have periodic social events. I enjoy music, cultural and the many outdoor festivals that this community is known for, including the nine day Rochester International Jazz Festival in June, one of the best and biggest in the country. I transformed my small back yard into the beginnings of an English garden, i.e., lots of bushes and plants, a path, mulch and no grass. I am a member of and teacher in a peer counseling program called Re-evaluation Counseling. I enjoy people of all ages and backgrounds. It is easy for me to converse with strangers; and I am friendly with pretty much everyone. As for how I host: I provide a clean attractive space, in a nonsmoking environment. Depending on when folks come, I may be at one of many community/counseling related meetings; and when home am delighted to visit with my guests to the extent they would like that. My house is around the corner from the 390 expressway, across the river from the University of Rochester campus (walkable); 3 blocks from Erie Canal bike/hike trails; near Rochester Institute of Technology and Monroe Community College; about 10 minutes from downtown Rochester and 5 minutes from the airport. I have rudimentary understandings of Spanish, French and sign language: I am not fluent by a long shot. My long range goal is to live to at least 100 and to make decisions now (ie excercise, diet, stress, relationships, health care) that will help me get there. I have never had a "bad" airbnb guest. Everyone has been a delight to meet.

During your stay
I enjoy meeting each guest and learning more about them and their daily experiences here if their time permits and to the extent they are comfortable with that. I am pleased to tell you about the Rochester area.
