Hey, I’m Joy!

During the school year, I am an educator of adolescents with special needs. This is my dream job, which I have finally begun after many years spent running a small medical transcription business. During the summer months, I love to travel and meet new people. I am also happy spending time all by myself at my cabin on a remote lake in northern Wisconsin. My household consists of me, my two young adult sons, Stanley the cat, Rufus the English Setter, and Falcor the gecko lizard.

I have not yet had a chance to rent an apartment through airbnb, but my two friends and I had a wonderful 11-day stay in Paris last summer through a (website hidden) listing. One of my favorite memories of the trip is the day the digital keypad to the apartment broke, and we were locked out. The name and phone number of the owner were locked inside the apartment. Two restaurant workers, a window installer, our elderly neighbor, and two young realtors (none of whom spoke English) all banded together to help us contact the owner so he could fix the lock! Vive les Parisiennes!

As a house/apartment guest, I want you to know that I am friendly, outgoing, respectful of others, flexible, adaptable, and not particularly critical of my surroundings. I will treat your home with care. I don't smoke, and I leave my pets at home!

P.S. Je parle francais un peu.
