I am many things: an artist, a history buff, a preservationist, a restorer of old houses and the proud Mom of two grown daughters. My roots in Pittsburgh go back 4 generations. I am old enough to remember the smoke and soot of Pittsburgh past; its transformation has been nothing short of miraculous. We're clean, we're green, our downtown is thriving, our restaurants world class, our neighborhoods charming, invigorated by young creatives, techies and entrepreneurs. I love welcoming visitors to Pittsburgh–––I know the city well. I can help ease you into a new environment and help you make the most of your visit.
