Hi there fellow Airbnbers.
I grew up in St. Louis MO, lived in Dallas for 8 years and moved to Chicago in 1992.
Love to cook and entertain friends, bike, hike, swim, listen to live music, dance and practice yoga.
I have always been intrigued with why we all think and act the way we do, so I love to travel and see it as a source of education, and myself as a citizens of the world vs. a Chicagoan or American
After over 20 years in national sales with a division of Citigroup, I have started off in a slightly different direction. I have been taking classes at the Chicago Botanic Garden and was just accepted into their Master Gardener program while I start a niche landscaping business with a focus on sustainable / community / vertical / edible gardens.
I love Chicago, it has all of the offerings of a world class city yet still has that small town feel to it.
I have always wanted to open a B & B most of my life so this is a perfect fit for me and an experience I thoroughly enjoy.
My goal is to anticipate your needs before and during your stay, make you feel like you are at home while you here at the apartment, and hopefully help you leave with just the right combination of experiences under your belt.
Chicago is a dynamic city with almost and endless list of fun things to do, but I I have listed out over 50 of my favorite bars, restaurants, coffee shops, retail stores, as well as some of the best of the arts, entertainment and sightseeing activities.
If you would like me to email you this list before you get here to help plan your outing just let me know. Right now I am working on grouping the list into categories like “rainy day”, “If you have a car”, and “little known treasures”.
To me, life is all about the relationships we make on our journey, so feel free to contact me about anything I can do to help out.
