__Creator of Lava Adventures & Lodging
Native to Idaho, I have been visiting Lava Hot Springs for over 25 years seeking rest and renewal in the healing waters. Over the years I have been drawn to this magical village nestled in the mountains. Major life changes prompted me to move to Lava Hot Springs in January 2005. With a strong desire to find peace in my own soul my new journey began. My first home in Lava was a cozy little cabin vacation rental where I took up residency my first month. I arrived with my skis and purchased a pass to the hot springs. I began investigating the surrounding area for skiing options and was soon asked to help open a Nordic Center at the local golf course. This opportunity along with a love for the outdoors, being in Nature and staying fit inspired me to create Lava Adventures, my outdoor recreation business.
After a year of living in Lava Hot Springs I realized vacation properties were in demand. This inspired me to expand my business to include lodging. I now manage several vacation rental home as well as long term rental properties.
I am active in the Lava Chamber of Commerce, having served as Vice-President, Secretary/Treasurer and on sub-committees. I offer guided tours in and around Lava exploring Nature and promoting wellness while inspiring myself and others to find peace and joy in their life. With over 5 years of apprenticeship I now offer massage therapy.
I love to travel and explore the wonders of Nature and different cultures in the world.
I realize the charm of this little mountain village I now call home attracts many people.
I am very blessed to live here.
