I'm a performing arts and cultural event programmer at a university. I'm also a mother to active, awesome young boys. Connecting people through the arts is my passion. For 20 years I've lived and worked in this unique community. I love the mix of rugged, outdoor beauty and the easy access to arts and culture this area offers. I grew up on the ocean, so I try to visit the coast often.
I'd like to offer you a taste of refined mountain history, culture, art and outdoors adventures - my favorite things! I believe it's important to feel comfortable and at home, even when you're traveling. Elegant, creative and laid back is my style.
