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

    * a mid-century modern Mad Men house with a stunning selection of oak trees and terrific northern views; and

    * a charming California ranch with guest house, pool and western views overlooking the Fallbrook golf course.

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.

I look forward to hearing from you!
