  • Description


    We are a small family of three- My husband, daughter and myself. We live in our private home in New York in a quiet residential neighborhood.

    I enjoy being a workawayer as well as a host and have traveled extensively. We have had some amazing experiences hosting international guests. We are easy going and love meeting people from all walks of life and sharing experiences.

    Our lives are pretty fast paced and we could use some help around the house. My husband went back to school studying accounting and my daughter is a pharmacy student. l work full time in a school as a School Counselor.

    I love New York because of it's cosmopolitan, vibrant and diversity- Lots of attractions and sightseeing

    My family enjoy traveling/exploring reading, outdoor activities, watching movies, jogging and running.
