Greetings from the Rose City! I'm a new host and a busy professional with an active lifestyle who loves meeting new people from different parts of the country or the world. As a mother to a now grown daughter with a life of her own, I enjoy sharing my charming and humble abode. I enjoy both time alone and time with others sharing life stories and experiences, so as a host would be very adaptable to providing as much or as little contact as my guests might desire
Like many Portlanders, I love the outdoors and most of my passions involve being outside, regardless of the weather. I am a year-round bike commuter to my job downtown (5 miles one-way), love to hike and garden in the warmer months, and snow-shoe and XC ski in the winter months. I am a music and movie lover as well. I am a native Oregonian who returned to the state 16 years ago after living for over 20 years in New Mexico and the Washington, D.C. area. My goal as a new host is to provide a comfortable, welcoming place for travelers who are just passing through Portland or would like to stay and explore. I am a new host, so haven't yet had the opportunity to garner positive reviews, but I invite you to peruse my references from those who know me well, are Airbnb users themselves, and are familiar with my home or have stayed with me before. Give me the opportunity and I'm sure I'll develop a cache of positive reviews in no time!
