I live in Edina, Minnesota, US with my husband and three children. My oldest son has graduated from college and is working in California. We still have two children at home ages 15 and 16.
I am taking a break from the work world. I previously ran a nonprofit and a foundation in Minneapolis. Prior to that, I earned a Ph.D., taught at a university, worked in corporate America, etc. I enjoy reading, gardening, music, and ethnic foods. I have traveled extensively and have resided all over the US and abroad. Politically, I tend to be on the left of the spectrum but with carefully reasoned and relatively objective opinions (at least I try).
I tend to be gone as a guest exploring the city. I don't get up early or stay out late, however. Frankly, I have already done both of these in earlier years and don't feel the need now.
I have rented a number of times from Airbnb and have always had an excellent experience!
