I like to climb trees and read books; my favorite places to visit and explore are small towns.
I like to make things, work on my little house, big garden and share the progress and projects (that’s where this blog comes in).
I enjoy spending time with friends crafting, chatting, making delicious food, running, hiking and biking.
I especially like doing anything in close proximity to my beautiful manfriend, Michael.
In my 40 hr/week job, I manage the city’s transit system The Jule. In recent history, I’ve worked to develop communities through economic development, strategic planning, needs assessment, grant writing, public transit partnerships and marketing/communications.
I love Iowa and my hometown, Dubuque: a city that is constantly changing and improving thanks to residents who are empowered to make a difference. Check the blogroll for links to the many grassroots efforts that make me proud to call this place home.
