Please introduce yourself.

I started my career with Hyatt Hotels, opened the 400 room HMS Queen Mary Hotel, Long Beach, CA as reservations manager, transferred to the L A Hyatt Regency, Hyatt on Sunset, Hollywood; and left Hyatt Regency Monterey as the the Director of Human Resources. There were twists and turns from there as business partner to a temporary help service; training manager for retail hardware; placement manager Man Power to national consulting, organizational development and hospitality training self-employment. WA is too cold for me, I enjoy seasonal follow the sun in the winter breaks? I am a dog-loving, motorcycle-riding, boat-loving, karaoke-singing, RV-driving, child and grand-child-free woman, I am seeking similar spirits.

Tell us a little about your business.

I own a small and unique romantic getaway. I originated its concept with the help of my husband (sadly deceased) which has blossomed in the 18 years since opening. I finally moved toward total self-employment 8 years ago. I take delight in its creation and my guests' enjoyment.

What type of business activities do you enjoy? What operations and promotion activities?

Marketing on the Internet and creating ideas. I love to meet people through trade shows, chamber of commerce gatherings to even cold calling for sales. I enjoy training. Computers are a continuous learning curve.

What type of social activities do you enjoy?

Karaoke, card games, volunteering our group doing something meaningful for a 1 day stint where I can really get to know the people while we are accomplishing, boat trip on Puget Sound, bus or train trip during the end of season October thru March for getaway with others- spend a weekend, Pacific Beach rent one of the military houses and spend a weekend together.

What is your main reason for joining this Meet Up?

My time is very much absorbed with business so when I gather with a group I would love to share common experiences with like minds and tap on that energy.


I am single, 55+year woman. I seek to find progressive-thinking­, energy-charging, sincere people, both men and women. I want to share some laughs and play on limited time.
