I’m a 3rd generation New Orleanian who left to go to LSU, then graduate school in Boston. Married, moved to Lethbridge, Alberta ( Canada) for 10 years, raised kids, and returned to New Orleans in 2002. I've enjoyed welcoming visitors into my home everywhere I’ve lived. In the 1970’s and 80’s I traveled in Europe, and it was there I met the most amazing people who opened their homes to me, and I felt part of their families, if just for a few days. The highest compliment I receive from my guests is they feel comfortable and at home here at the Treehouse. I love my city- beyond her party face – from the beautiful parks, the Mardi Gras fountain and sunset at the Lakefront, the variety of arts, music and museums, neighborhood restaurants with award winning chefs, weekly festivals , farmer’s markets and art fairs, and the fact that on any given day you can run across a burst of music and a parade. I hope every guest can experience a spontaneous New Orleans moment to create a special memory in this kaleidoscope of a city. Whatever I can do to facilitate that is my pleasure.
Interests in no particular order: Music, dogs, miniatures and dollhouses, organic gardening, scrapbooks, hydroponics, aquaculture, good food, kitchen parties, dancing around the house, smell of night flowers and pine trees, festivals, walking in the woods, reading powerful novels and good comics, some TV- silent moves, ahhh- there's more...
Philosophy of life so far- all great religions’ core beliefs: kindness towards others, forgiveness, belief that the universe is good, and we have a purpose for being here--and that in the long run, ten years from now, whatever unfortunate trivial thing that is happening now, probably won’t matter.
