My husband and I live just outside of New York City with our baby girl, Violet. We are both entrepreneurs and after a few years of dreaming, we are time free! We love to travel, especially during the East Coast Winter. I am a women's leadership coach and travel the world to attend and lead retreats and my husband Brent loves to travel, especially when he can ski or surf.
We can't live without fresh organic food, good wine, close friends, warm days in the sun, new opportunities and adventures.
Our favorite travels have been Bali and Paris.
We love to host our home and appreciate a luxury experience from our fellow airbnb hosts!
