Originally, I am from Iowa but I've lived in DC for 25+ years. I have a long history in Iowa politics ... and here. My policy expertise relates to communications, agriculture and rural America ... also the Iowa Caucuses. I love people, entertaining, reading and learning, art and design, growing flowers in my garden, and international travel. I've traveled in about 20 countries -- about half for work where I've spoken at int'l conferences and the others for fun. I like getting to know the locals, seeing how people live, going to art museums and also flea markets. My last trip was to Europe where I stayed in an Airbnb room/bath of a private home in Amsterdam and then in a 1st floor 2BR apartment in Paris. I travel with one wheelie bag -- on the small side. Generally, I like to stay in one place for several days or a week. I read incessantly -- other people watch TV, but I read -- the Washington Post, the New York Times, political books and also romances, sci-fi, and murder mysteries. You'll find some of the latter in a basket in the apartment. Airbnb asks whether I have a life motto? Looking at my life, I think mine must be, "Do whatever it takes! to make life happen!”

During your stay
ACCESS JUST FOR YOU: I share an entry code for the front door in advance so that there won't be a wait for you to get into the apartment upon arrival. When schedules match, I live upstairs and will occasionally greet you personally but during this pandemic, it is more likely I'll send you welcome note after you check in. You may count on me to be available via text and/or cell to answer questions. For additional assistance, one of the features of the apartment is our WELCOME BOOK. It offers detailed instructions about both house rules and pandemic rules, walking directions to the US Capitol, Metros, and nearby restaurant & shopping areas, how the appliances work, suggestions for favorite nearby restaurants, directions for transportation options and more.
