About Me
I am a native of Berkeley California. My husband, 2 children, and I live in my family home. I am a public school teacher for Berkeley Unified School District. We enjoy travel, great books, and the outdoors. Six years ago, my husband and I had a beautiful cottage built in the back yard of our home in the fabulous Elmwood neighborhood of Berkeley. To this date, we have had about 6 tenants. The cottage is now free, and we are excited to put it up for rent again.
