I live with my husband Paul in an off grid home in Chester, MA. I like vegetable gardening, hiking, reading and creating visual art. I am self employed wall – paperhanger and painter. I decided to follow my younger’s son footsteps by pursuing an academic journey at Holyoke Community College. Now as a transfer student at Mount Holyoke, I am passionate about sustainability and I am majoring in philosophy with a possible minor in critical social thought.
