About Me
I have a masters in social Work and worked as a substance abuse/treatment counselor and teacher for most of my professional career. Then, I got promoted to the "level of my incompetence"-as an administrator of the Sustance abuse and treatment program. Does anyone remember the "Peter principle? I have since retired and have lived in Carrboro/Chapel Hill since. My husband is an architect and has designed and built a zero footprint house for us, nearby. We will be moving into it in June and I would like to rent my charming, single family 1400 square foot two bedroom, two bathroom home, starting in July or August. A modern kitchen and a separate dining room, passive solar construction, radiant floor heat and PVC panels and solar hot water panels on roof which cut down utility expenses. Beautiful furniture-quality cherry cabinets in kitchen. My home is in a co-housing community (intentional community) in Carrboro, a town right next to Chapel Hill. One of the bedrooms is upstairs and the other is downstairs. We use the downstairs bedroom, alternatively, as an office/study. There are two decks shaded by mature Japanese maple trees. Well landscaped and cared for by owner (that's me!). Rent is $1400/month. I will expect you and me to sign a lease agreement together. I have travelled extensively, to Russia to study their approach to alcoholism, to Surinam- a service trip to study turtles, to Kenya for a safari, to Hawaii to study whales, to Egypt to study ancient Egyptian art, to Nepal to trek and see the stars (like nowhere else!), to Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, India; to Germany for a year's study, and on many Sierra Club Service trips to do trail repair in the mountains and to our fascinating and stunningly beautiful western United States where you see the bones of our world! Any question- do not hesitate to ask!
