Born Switzerland, raised in Cambridge, MA. Graduate of Radcliffe College, with an MSSW and an MPA from the University of Wisconsin. Moved back east about 7 years ago to be closer to my children (who live here, New Haven and DC). I have 2 dogs- Bird, a big golden retriever and Maggie, a medium-sized rescue retriever mix who likes to jump into cars and up to say hello. I live a lovely, peaceful life of reading, walking, listening to classical music and yard work (which I hate).
I've newly converted to Judaism, which I enjoy, though don't ask me what a Hebrew word means.
Did I mention books? The house is filled with them. I've travelled extensively with Overseas Adventure Travel in the past decade, including Israel, Turkey, Russia, Spain, Italy and Germany.
My idea of hosting is simple: here if you need me, but happy to have you simply enjoy the space and the Happy Valley.
