About Me
I am a social worker and educational administrator at the International Language Institute in Northampton, MA. My husband is a nationally-known trauma therapist and teacher of EMDR and related trauma treatment methods. We lived in NYC for 20+ years before moving to Amherst in 1994. We have both lived and traveling in other countries, and both speak Spanish. I speak some French. We are organic gardeners and love all the cultural opportunities this area has to offer, especially world music. We are also 5-star Airbnb hosts. We're hoping to rent to people who understand something about home ownership, and don't accidentally destroy the house because they don't know about pipes freezing or how to defrost a freezer (we are happy to provide guidance for internationals or those from other climates :) We will be living nearby and will be readily available.
