After working in the Medical Nutrition field for over 20 years and running a traditional B&B in my home for over 8 years I decided to make a career change. I recently opened a Massage and Wellness center where I practice the art of Thai Yoga Massage Therapy. I also enjoy hand-building pottery pieces and constructing mosaics in my spare time. My husband is an engineer and likes to tour on bicycle and sail. We both enjoy nature, art, movies, hiking, kayaking sailing, our cats and meeting new people.
