I am a graphic designer with a penchant for interior design and interest in textiles. I love to travel and have lived in East Africa. I enjoy the beauty of this river valley and feel that I'm lucky to live surrounded by small towns, each with their own unique offerings. There is so much to do in the country! I enjoy the music and art scene in this area, and the focus on good food, natural surroundings, and community spirit. I have been part of a book group and the latest book we read is "Beautiful Ruins", a great summer read. I have a kayak and try to get out on the inlets and lakes. I also love to get to NYC and Boston to museums and visiting family and friends. It's a full life for me here in Vermont!
