I was born in Germany and have traveled extensively over her lifetime, living in India, Cambodia, Italy, and Switzerland. I arrived in the USA with my ex-husband in 1980 and have lived in CT, NJ, NC, GA & FL. Along the way, I gained a master’s degree in theology and pursued my strong belief in providing a quality education for my three daughters through home schooling, Waldorf Education, and educational placements abroad. For 30 years, I was also very involved with the student exchange program Youth for Understanding.

I have been following the cohousing movement since its inception and introduced the idea to Jack. I have thought of it as “the lifestyle of the future” and was waiting for the right time and place to investigate it further. Jack and I are excited to prepare for an urban lifestyle with BCC and to share our gifts and talents with community members. We also look forward to having access to all the services, activities, and events Durham and Duke have to offer.
