Outdoor activities and environmental protection have always been important to me. Favorite outings include canoeing, kayaking, sailing, hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, mountain biking, and bird watching, which can become the highlight of any adventure.

You can find me on North Pond. In the early spring my bug hat and I will be found in a green kayak observing our wildlife. My husband Tom and I will kayak till the ice stops us from getting in! When paddling is not possible you may find me out snowshoeing or riding the magic carpet at Mt Abram.
Skills I bring to your board; Besides my love for our property, our shared pond and the local wildlife, I have 30+ years in the Waste-to-Energy Industry managing staff, creating a highly functioning team, providing outstanding customer service and where I have been responsible for the recording, billing and collection of 80 million dollars of revenue per year.
I look forward to the day where I can retire and spend more time here and in my metal smithing studio. If you see me stop me and say hello!
