I come from a big (mostly Irish) Catholic family, 7th generation Californian. I love to travel, have been to Europe a few times (love Italy and France), Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Ethiopia, Mexico, Canada, and even some of the USA ! including Alaska and Hawaii. I am a nurse, with most of my experience in oncology and Hospice. In my outside-of -work interests I am currently making efforts to assist a Franciscan community in Ethiopia provide women with microloans and training in small business practices. I like to help make the world a better place....am into "win-win" opportunities. I love hiking, camping under the stars, redwoods, theatre, symphony and movies...(if they spin a good yarn) ...I'm outgoing, am honest and will be respectful of your home. I own rental property and so appreciate responsible and considerate renters/guests.
