I’ve had an interest in Intentional Communities for many years. I semi retired fall of 2018 and went looking, thinking I might end up in Colorado or California. Then I learned about Haystack Heights and many things fell into place to finally make my dream into reality right here in Washington State.
Until now I’ve spent most of my life living in Portland and Seattle. When I found out about Haystack Heights I wanted to be involved as soon as possible, so right away I moved to Spokane and jumped in to be part of several teams.
I worked as a Physical Therapist for about 25 yrs. I then transitioned into being a dog [people really] trainer, running my own business for the last 20+ years. Obviously, I love dogs. Two will be joining me at Haystack: Split and Mozart. I also enjoy bicycling, gardening, cooking, crocheting, reading, Netflix, and games. I love playing games!
I enjoy people, love problem solving, and being helpful. I was incredibly impressed with the people and the property of Haystack Heights. I’m looking forward to working in the gardens, cooking, eating meals together, and having new friends close by. I’m also looking forward to starting up my dog training business part time, teaching K9 Nose Work classes, as the only Certified Nose Work Instructor in the greater Spokane area.
