I moved to Asheville in 2005 from Palo Alto. Grew up in San Francisco. My parents immigrated from Ireland, so I have lots of Irish family and travel there frequently. One of my favorite things about Asheville is how similar it is to Ireland. Just as green, but with better weather.
I am an Electrical Engineer, worked at NASA and PG&E; jumped ship to teach high school science at Gunn High School in Palo Alto.
I enjoy entertaining and traveling and love the idea of creating a space where visitors to Asheville can relax and enjoy this amazing town. I lived in the Montford home for five years, and it is a wonderful space, with great energy. I spent many hours working in the garden and this spring it's paying off........Then I moved to another lovely neighborhood, Grove Park, and renovated another 100 year old home. I also rent the apartment downstairs in that home.
I am working on adding some of my favorite places to my Guidebook section, so check that out. Feel free to ask any questions about the house, apartment, or Asheville area...... - Anne Marie
