I am from the Galesburg community, and I graduated from Knox College. I returned to Galesburg in 2015, and purchased my first home in the area. As a frequent traveler, who enjoys the experience of an Airbnb, I believe my convenient spaces are a welcome retreat for people visiting family, or attending events in the area. I host two Airbnb's, the "Custer Carriage House Downtown Galesburg" an entire home, and the "En Suite in Historic Home in Galesburg" which is a private space. I love to promote Galesburg history, and I am currently a board member of the Galesburg Civic Art Center.
