I am married to a wonderful guy, Dennis. We are empty nesters with a big home to share with our guests. We enjoy art, hiking, camping, fishing, and gardening. In addition to my work as a school arts administrator and elementary counselor, Dennis and I are artists, creating and selling unique hard shelled gourds, re-purposed furniture, wood chairs, etc. We've traveled the world, from Brazil to Ireland and enjoy meeting new people and making new friends. Our life motto: "I've always depended upon the kindness of strangers."
