Great New Job

I'm excited about my new job as office manager of Willowbank Heritage Estate and School of Restoration Arts in Queenston (link below). This magnificent building, considered one of the finest remaining examples of Colonial architecture in North America, and its surrounding grounds were rescued from development by Laura Dodson and a group of heritage advocates. For her work on this project Laura was appointed to the Order of Canada. She is a truly amazing woman whose quiet, calm demeanor belies a will of steel. Willowbank has been named a National Historic Site. The plan is to add courses every year, and eventually have a full Heritage Restoration Programme and accreditation in place.
