Life has its way of just happening but if anyone had told Gail years ago that she would be running a golf course in rural Vermont, she would have said ridiculous this experience was so far removed from her reality.
Despite growing up in affluent Westchester County, New York, Gail worked her way through undergraduate and graduate schools to become the first family member to attain a college degree and have a professional career as a teacher and high school guidance counselor.
However, when Gail's husband retired, she told him that she did not want him home for lunch! Thus begins this unusual story. Their lifestyle changed dramatically. Although no stranger to hard work, nothing could have prepared them for the outrageous people in general and golfers in particular they met during their nine year adventure in the north country.
Gail presently enjoys an active lifestyle which includes swimming and walking daily but tries to balance this with other more intellectual and reflective pursuits such as reading, writing, attending theatre and concerts.
