I grew up in Atlanta, GA living the “city life” with a dream of someday seeing myself in the mountains in a log home with a wonderful man and my horse in the back yard. After graduating from the University of Georgia and a ten year career in Advertising in Oregon, my husband and I came to Teton Valley to be ski bums for one year…that was over 20 years ago! We love the Tetons, the entire Yellowstone area, skiing, biking, hiking, kayaking and the slower lifestyle and the people of this valley! I have been blessed to find my dream here in Idaho and want to help others find their dream here too!
