Years in Carbondale


What I love about Carbondale

My brother and his family are here. Having lost our mom 9 years ago, I feel very lucky to be close to him, and to own businesses a few hundred yards from each other!

Little known fact about you

I was a cheerleader at Georgetown University for about 8 months in my freshman year. It makes me laugh-cringe whenever I think of it. I still have the uniform--it’s handy on Halloween...

"My heart landed in Carbondale the moment I first visited, about 20 years ago. Strange, as I was born and raised in Washington, DC, and lived there until I was 32. But, something about this place is truly magical--from the people to the land to the crystal blue skies to the dry, sage smell in the air. It’s my perfect home."
