I'm a bilingual (English/Spanish) elementary school teacher. I dance, garden, and hike. When not taking care of my home of over 30 years, I love to travel, especially in the Pacific Northwest. Hosting and staying with other airbnb hosts is the BEST way I've found to discover new places and more importantly to connect with great people. Through hosting, my world has expanded as I've welcomed travelers from around the globe. I love to host travelers who seize every opportunity to explore this wonderful part of the world and who then appreciate my lovely home and garden retreat after a day of discovery.
