I am a long-time California property owner who has refurbished several properties. I currently offer one as vacation rentals in North San Diego County: 

    * a charming home with guest house, pool and western views overlooking open space and the hills to sunset view. The open space is being converted to a vineyard. Sn Italian-themed winery, restaurant, bar and event venue (corporate, family, weddings) is planned for the area.


For many years, I worked as a government affairs, marketing and public relations specialist. This work honed my research and writing skills and I specialized in natural resources, environmental issues and property rights.


Over the last five years, I have transitioned into the vacation rental business. I enjoy resolving regulatory conflicts and marketing properties on behalf of property owners. Beyond San Diego County, I have recently expanded into the very special Mendocino Village.  


I’ve had some interesting jobs during my career.


In my first hospitality-based business, I owned and operated a sailboat charter company, operating during the very exciting America’s Cup on San Diego Bay.


I managed shoreside operations for my family’s tuna fishing boat and was the first female officer of the American Tunaboat Association. While educating the public about tuna fishing, I helped pass federal legislation supported by the fisherman and five major environmental organizations, including Greenpeace, the World Wildlife Fund and the Center for Marine Conservation.  


As the Executive Director of a national trade association, I contributed to an increase in the auction value of farmers’ goods from $73 million to over $230 million.


I am an “Enviropreneur” with the Property and Environment Research Center, perc.org, where I researched the management of invasive species via markets.


I also worked at a Washington, DC think tank where I wrote on a variety of subjects as Director of its Environment and Enterprise Institute.


In 2016, I volunteered with www.SaveFallbrookGolfCourse.com. The efforts of this group resulted in a new owners for this special property in the Gird Valley area of Fallbrook. The new owners, Fallbrook residents Jade and Julie Work, are converting the fallowed course into a vineyard, winery and Italian themed restaurant and bar. We can’t wait to see the end results! The Works have also committed to save the property from residential development through the use of conservation easements, a huge gift for the community.
