I am from Washington, D.C. I have two adult daughter, one in NOLA, the other in (website hidden). I direct Health Policy for the District's Medicaid program. My husband works for ACE Hardware. We live in a home built in 1896 that we have restored ourselves - so we spend a lot of time in hardware stores!! We love dancing (zydeco) and once ran our own record label. We have a large, 100 lb black lab named Petey. We have always shared our large home with others including foreign exchange students (we had five) , extra kids, Fulbright and other traveling scholars, visiting actors and young professionals - so we love the idea of Air B n B. My only requirements are a clean, comfy bed and coffee in the AM. Otherwise, we are very flexible, independent and low maintenance.
