more about your host Jenefer

I love hosting travelers in three wonderful locations: Koru Riverside Retreat, Coromandel, New Zealand; the AC Thomas House in New Harmony, Indiana, an elegant Victorian bed and breakfast inn. I also co-host ann elegant 1830’s townhouse in Dupont Circle Washington,DC where I reside when I’m “in town”.

I work in Washington at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau – Office for the Financial Protection of Older Americans, preventing financial exploitation of older people. I have diverse interests in social justice, animal advocacy, environmental protection, travel, photography, fine art, music, culture (particularly Maori) and more. I enjoy cooking, wine tasting, and good conversations with folks from all walks of life. I especially enjoy doing everything in my power to provide my guests with relaxing, pleasant and memorable experiences.

My main residence is in Snow Camp, North Carolina, where I live with my husband, a golden retriever & Jack Russell Terrier, 2 tuxedo kitties, 2 llamas, a Belgian draft horse, a retired racetrack thoroughbred, and a cockatiel named Elvis.
