About me

We live on a beautiful Island!  I moved here with my husband in 2002 from Alaska, after we bought our house in 2000.  We have two dogs and a wonderful house and my office on our property.   There is plenty of parking at the office and a quaint old sugar cane plantation town to visit when you come to see me.  I do a lot of work with clients through email as well, especially my mainland clients.  Please drop by and say hello!
