I am 64 years old and just recently retired from psychiatric nursing at a local hospital.. My husband is a school psychologist who works with elementary schools in the area. We live in a rural area but are just 10 minutes away from the college town of Keene. I love animals and nature. I have many gardens and fruit bearing trees. My husband and I have been involved with workaway for 4 years and absolutely love it. We have met so many great people that we still keep in touch with all of them. We like to work together and also have fun together. We enjoy showing volunteers our favorite places.

I work as a hospice volunteer and am an active person. Both my husband and I love to hike, kayak, cross country ski or snowshoe when there is enough snow. We also love to travel.
