How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
Reading Walk Out Walk On by Meg Wheatley & Deb Frieze 8/8/11. I was attracted to it by a friend, Linda Watson, while planning a Chautauqua Fall Festival in my community.
Tell us about your experience with Art of Hosting as part of your life and work. What would you say your competence in it is? (new, starting practitioner, experienced practitioner, steward)
New, very little exposure to it at this time.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
I am on the Board of Directors of a homeowner's association. My focus is to build a healthy community, a sense of community, an community spirit. I currently have a dynamic group of leaders who are co-creating a fall festival which will have a life long learning series included where the Art of Hosting will be a part. We are currently trying to contact Lina Cramer to be one of our speakers.
Where do you live/work?
WingHaven in O'Fallon, Mo. A community which was designed to be a place where residents could live, work, play, and learn.
Are there interests/passions that you'd like to share?
I am a life long learner, a retired school psychologist, a master naturalist, Board member of the St. Charles County Arts Council, and Director of the WROA. At this point I have the luxury to giving back to my community on a voluntary basis.
