Did you know . . . after having spent her career in the steel business making wrought/rolled products, looks forward to meeting women friends. She wants to know how to save her landscaping from the “Mad Hedge Clipper” who only knows straight lines! Originally from Portland, Oregon, Kathleen wants to learn what will grow and thrive in Naples. Plants and learning to play bridge are her new priorities. Enjoy your well earned retirement Kathleen.
