I'm a child of the 60's and 70's, born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison with my bachelor's degree in Occupational Therapy. I've made Portland, Oregon my home since January 1981 and have actively loved this place ever since! I started my professional practice here and raised my family while squeezing in plenty of Oregon recreation: skiing, hiking, kayaking, beach bumming.
I traveled extensively in Europe and Turkey for 9 months in 1975. But, I have been stateside since then, busy with all of the above.
I look forward to travel in the future, when my post professional life settles into place.
As a host you'll find me welcoming and friendly and my home tidy, organized and relaxed. I've lived in my home for 25 years, dearly love my neighborhood and city and love to help others get to experience it too.
