I am a first generation American (from German immigrants) who loves to travel and discover new places, people and experiences. I much prefer to stay at private homes than hotels, so I can be more comfortable and experience the local culture. I guess you could say hosting is in my blood, as almost all of my ancestors on my Mom's side were/are hotel or guest house owners (and I was fortunate enough to work /learn from some of them when I was a teen and got to live in Europe!) I am a life long learner and elementary school Special Education Instructor. I am also a holistic wellness practitioner and love to dance and sing!
I believe that homes should be comfortable and have great hang out spaces. I love to cook and have fully equipped kitchens, fresh local foods, share good meals and chill out with good friends (and an excellent bottle of wine!).
I love animals and accept pets in my homes and like to take my "baby" Japanese Chin with me wherever I go. I believe that the energy we give out can change the world...so lots of love to you in all you do!
