Why I Love St George
I am what they refer to in New York as a saddle baby, born in New York City and raised with one foot in New York and the other in New Jersey. I lived in Chicago for nine years, and graduated from School of Art Institute of Chicago, SAIC. My husband, Charles, and I came here on vacation in 2012 and fell in love with the area. We went home, packed, and moved to our new home in the desert. I adore the mountains and the small-town feel. I still can’t believe the amazing weather; spring is my favorite. I love the gorgeous, sunny, warm days, and the cool nights. It’s perfect for hiking, and riding my motorcycle through Zion and Springdale. A road trip in any direction is a picturesque adventure, beautiful and inspiring. St. George is an amazingly peaceful place. It is the perfect community to raise a family. And for the artist, the scenic views of red bluffs, towering mountains, and diverse terrains are incredible backdrops. Living in St. George has inspired me to be a social entrepreneur with the aim of solving social problems to effect social change, and to start more than one business. Creative Art Spa is my latest creation, and Creative Well Design & My Quint*Essential Life is the other. My journey to St. George from the big city has definitely been an adventure.
