We were fortunate enough to discover Orcas Island back in 2003, it was then that we made the decision this was where we wanted to retire. In 2011 we made this a reality and focus on our vacation homes full time. We enjoy working on projects where we can find a ugly ducking of a house and turn it into a beautiful swan. My husband is incredibly handy so we can do all the work ourselves. We work well together as his talents combined with my passion for interior design makes for a winning team. Favorite hobbies are cooking, entertaining and sailing. Our children are very precious to us as we lost our youngest son a few years ago and now realize how important it is to to slow down and make time for family and friends. Everyday is Precious!
