My personal interests include holistic gardening (beyond organic) and music. I have played musical instruments for more than forty years and I occasionally write songs. I also enjoy creating and solving logic puzzles.
My love of gardening has been with me for as long as I can remember. Now that I own a home in Belmont, I have filled the land with perennials such as fruits, nuts, asparagus and saffron; a large annual vegetable garden; and extensive plantings to benefit pollinators, butterflies, song birds and overall ecosystem health. I enjoy the beauty that nature creates.
I grew up in the 1970s in Annandale, Virginia. I was blessed to attend good quality, integrated public schools with other students from around this country and the rest of the world. To give an idea of the times: My first year of school was the first time that girls were allowed to wear pants. I was in the last graduating class from Thomas Jefferson High School (Go Colonials!).
During my adult years, I spent some time on the West Coast before returning East. I have lived in cities, rural areas and farming communities. I did secretarial work until computers and technology made that mostly obsolete. More than a dozen years ago, the University of Virginia brought me to the Charlottesville area but I chose to remain here and call it home.
