I arrived in Puerto Rico October 13th 2017 to volunteer for 5 days... And I am still here on this isla bonita as the recovery and renewal continues to thrive! I'm grateful to have the time and resources to put my boots on the ground to help PR. I've been a gypsy traveling business woman since my nest became empty in 2010. I'm embracing the freedom of a life well planned on the fly!
