About Me
I grew up in an academic family and was fortunate to accompany my family on 3 sabbaticals during my childhood. I have fond memories of the homes we lived in, and understand how important a home can be when living in a new community, particularly if you have children. I am passionate about renovating old houses, and have recently completed work on a lovely cottage in Ithaca's historic Forest Home community, across from Fall Creek, surrounded by waterfalls and nature, and a literal 7 minute walk to Cornell.
