Austin, Texas, United States · Member since August 2010

Hello everyone, thank you for checking out my listing. I am a married mother of two wonderful teens (a boy and a girl). My husband is an intellectual property attorney. We both work out of our home most of the time and, therefore, are nearly always available to our guests. We enjoy hosting AirBnB travelers. We've also stayed in AirBnB rentals a number of times both in the U.S. and in Europe and love it!
