What is something you wish you knew before moving here?
That I would eventually live in flip-flops and love it!
Where do you go to escape into nature?
Definitely the water – boating or sitting on the beach, I love to be near the water. There’s something calming about the waves.
When friends or family come to visit, where is the first place you take them?
We have so many wonderful parks and trails, I usually take guests on an outdoor adventure. Whether we climb Devil’s Millhopper or feed horses at Mill Creek Farm or watch the bats emerge for the evening, we take advantage of great weather and head outdoors when friends or family visit.
