I am an artist/art therapist and recently retired from Western Michigan University as director/professor of the Integrative Holistic Health and Wellness Program. Kalamazoo is a rich and vibrant arts community and I love living here.
I have two married children, 5 grandchildren, and a mini golden doodle puppy.
I am a two-time cancer survivor, worked for Hospice, and also have a non-profit cancer help program.
In the past, I lived and worked in Japan and Denmark, then hosteled in Europe and visited many art galleries. Then it was time to settle down, begin a family, buy a house, and be normal.
In the past few years I have traveled to India, Japan, and Italy.
Airbnb is really grownup hosteling. I have enjoyed staying in airbnbs and always encountered warm and interesting people.
I am hoping to offer the same hospitality to my guests that I have received, and am looking forward to meeting people who love the arts, travel, and nature.
I am exploring what brings joy, meaning, and purpose into my life and expect this adventure will be part of the answer.

During your stay

I am open, welcoming, and respectful of people from all walks of life.
I live upstairs and since I am retired, I am home much of the time. I am willing to be social and get to know my guests, or I can leave you alone, as you please. Just let me know.
I am available to work with you to explore art therapy techniques.
I have an adorable mini golden doodle puppy (Nola) who loves attention.
You may encounter her in the fenced yard...just be sure the gate is locked so she can't get out.
