Born in Carroll County MD. My family then traveled to Idaho, Oregon, then finally settled here in Deep Creek. I have worked a total of 11 years in the vacation rental industry working in various departments - Hot Tub/Pools, Laundry, Housekeeping, Property Service, Owner Relations, Owner Relations Manager and now my current position as Property Service General Manager in 2021. My husband also works for the company and has a 14-year background in the industry as well. My husband and I have 3 children, 2 girls and one boy ranging in ages from 19 to 11. We have 1 cat Luna and 1 dog Jax. When I am not working, I enjoy hiking, have a toasty bonfire, diving into a nice craft project, and spending time with the family and friends.

If you only had a couple of days to spend in Deep Creek, what would you recommend doing? (Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter)
Summer/Spring - Boating on the lake, going on a fun hike in any of the state parks. Fall - Hiking to enjoy the beautiful foliage, visiting local shops in the area (School House Earth, Painted Cupboard, Sip Side Lounge, Train Station etc), bowling, movies at Garrett 8. Winter - Highly recommend tubing at Wisp always a hit with the kids, Skiing or Snowboarding, building a snowman, hiking at Swallow Falls, the falls are gorgeous with snow laying.
What is the most common misconception about DCL from out-of-towners?
Alot of people don't realize we are part of Maryland. Snow! People do not realize the amount of snow we get in a winter season, it's more than a dusting!
