Real Estate & Relocation
from Greenwich, Connecticut, I have lived in the Asheville North
Carolina area since 1989. I have a Master's degree in Ecology from the
University of Vermont, and have worked as a research scientist, military
officer, realtor, lecturer, painter and illustrator. I
have also lived in Vermont, Georgia, Korea, Brazil, Colorado and
Connecticut before settling down in beautiful Western North Carolina.
I am also a painter, and am currently working on an art and environmental defense project Liza's Reef, a series of paintings of an imaginary coral reef. The aim of the project is to raise awareness of environmental issues, and to raise money for environmental organizations and an orphanage on Fiji in the South Pacific. www.lizasreef.com.
