Passions and Avocations
We're an active group with interests that include:
cars and motorcycles
Sarah spent the last year getting to know us; she dove enthusiastically into the community and has enjoyed finding ways to help us live harmoniously together. She runs a small pet-sitting and dog-walking business, and she spends her days outdoors as much as she can walking her own 3-year old Golden Retriever. Every week she takes an afternoon to watch her two young grandsons, and she enjoys her Zentangle and Tai Chi. And she’s busily downsizing as move-in draws closer. Busy? She laughs. “Life couldn’t be any better!”
Frieda works half-time as Unitarian Universalist minister who lives with her partner and wife, Jen, in Framingham. She was born in Albuquerque, NM, raised in Los Angeles, and received her Masters’ Degree in Divinity from Brite Divinity School in Texas. She also worked in the computer industry doing project management, management and consulting. As a volunteer, she has worked with Ascentria, an organization that provides foster families for Unaccompanied Refugee Minors and their children. In addition to their own children, Frieda and Jen are also loving parents to two dogs and countless cats. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, walks in nature and cooking. Jen encourages her to exercise on the Peloton!
