Speaker Bio
A grandmother of seven, a mother of four, the San Juan Islands have been my home for 43 years. I have worked in Boat yards, Restaurants , Vacation Rentals, Gardens and house building industries. As an Artist and as a musician I have worked to share my talents teaching and volunteering whenever I can.

Housing here at one time was easy to find. As the years go by, the world has discovered our islands as vacation capitol. Many moderate to low income property and
rentals have been snatched up in the vacation rental business. Owning a home was out of my reach. Rentals are scarce. Through the San Juan Community Home Trust and hard work of a small group of people to create our Community Land Trust, I have been one of the fortunate people to be a home owner through the CLT on San Juan Island.

I now work in Home Care for the elderly. Because of my great good fortune, I volunteer for the SJCHT to raise awareness and fund raise, so others might benefit from the
visionary work of CLTs.
