Ginny hales from Southern New Hampshire via Norther VT and now makes her permanent

home here in Schroon Lake. Ginny brings a diverse back ground which started in the mid 1980’s as a business analyst, moved into internal auditing, then computer security and finally into teaching. She is currently using her artistic abilities for weaving and hand painted balsam pillows while taking care of her Mom. Ginny served as Treasurer for the New Hampshire Homeschooling Coalition and on the Board of Directors Finance committee for both the Temple Wilton Community Farm and Support Tutorial For Youth in NH. She is passionate about nature and conservation. With a goal of allowing humans to live in harmony with the native species of an area, she works to properly steward the thirty acre parcel-her residence is part of and maintaining proper respect for any lands she visits. With Schroon Lake being an integral part of the watershed she is interested in its continued health both from the perspective of a resident/conservationist and as a community member who wants to see this town and its attractions survive.
