I am originally from Minnesota, but now call Austin, Texas home. In 2001 I was able to be part of a team of teachers who co-founded a private school and I have been here ever since. The school has thrived over the years, starting with 9 students and now has over 550. I have held every role you could imagine, but currently serve as the College Counselor and Dean of Students for the upper school.
In my free time I am learning how to sew, reading, playing with my dogs, or mountain biking. I am one of those introverts everyone mistakes for an extrovert, so in my free time I prefer to stay away from the crowds to recharge.
As a guest you can expect me to take care of your place as if it were my own. I tend to pick up after myself, so don't expect a huge mess. I am quiet, non-smoking and respectful. When I am traveling, I like to explore the neighborhoods and see where the locals like to eat, shop and buy books. I love supporting small businesses, so hosts who share that information are especially helpful to me.
