Executive Life Coach, Trainer/Consultant and former Local Government manager native to Ohio but California resident since 1987. Extremely fond of the outdoors and love to read and absolutely love being a parent. My daughter attends a Waldorf (Steiner) school and my son goes to public school. We all love to travel and the last place we went together was on a mission trip to Uganda with an organization called Watoto. Music, dance and are all appreciated as well. We are all engaged in life and surrounded by friendships, love and fun. Five things I can't live without: (kids not allowed to be included for obvious reasons)-love, conversations, nature, passion, cheese. Favorite travel destinations: Pacific Coast anywhere, Europe in the future (Ireland, Spain, England, Scottland, Austria, Germany, Croatia, Poland, Italy). Books: anything by Marianne Williamson, Pema Chodron, Oriah Mountain Dreamer, Tolle, Carolyn Myss, Seth Godin, Mike Dooley, Wayne Dyer and of late Brene Brown. Movies: unabashedly a fan of The English Patient and mostly love the genre of dramas while kids seem to like action and adventure and we all like comedy! Food: Love to use gas grill and cook on it year round because we can. Adore fresh green salads and whatever fruits are in season. We all love Thai food. Love ice cream and know where the good places are for the best home made kinds!!
Hosting: You will experience a relaxed pace and style here and a kind of refuge from the madness. There is levity and things are "chill," which is the same thing as relaxed but more "hip" to say. The space itself is well-lit and feels comfortable and airy. The entire design is based on relationships having the primary focus for the space. It is inviting and not intimidating. Friendly. As head of household I really appreciate clear communication and will model that in terms of your stay here. I can't imagine anything cooler than meeting fellow travelers from all over...what an awesome way to share the experiences we are all having on mother earth!! As for a motto, I'm going to go with this: Worthiness is our birthright and we are all precious.
