About the owner: I am a retired French teacher who was born and spent most of my childhood years in Montreal, Canada except for 5 years in Orange Park, Florida where my father was a psychologist at the Yerkes chimpanzee lab and a year on scholarship at a university in Neuchatel, Switzerland. When I returned to Montreal I met my husband (on a blind date ) at McGill University where I was an undergrad student and my husband was a medical student. When we graduated he returned to Penna, his home state, for his internship. After that his residency training took us to Texas, Maryland, London, England and Wisconsin. During this time we had two sons and later adopted a daughter and took in foster daughters whom we wanted to adopt but the mothers just wanted to hold on to them loosely. In 1989 my husband’s friend, from undergrad years at Gettysburg College, purchased Nisbet Plantation on Nevis and we started buying land next door. We ended up with 4 acres on the ocean and now that we are retired we live in our own villa for 5 winter months and rent CORAL REEF VILLA.I have spent every summer of my life in Nova Scotia and only stay in Penna spring and fall for doctor appointments, and other essential visits. I am proud to be a Canadian citizen as well as an American citizen .
