Describe what you do in town.

I own Duo, a boutique that sells both new and gently worn clothing, and buys clothes directly from customers. I opened Duo a little over 7 years ago and am now focused on growing our online store.

Happily busy!

Top Picks

A favorite dish in town.

Steak Chinois at C&O. It’s consistently delicious, and it seems like most everyone in town knows it!

A favorite weekly or monthly food special.

Clifton Inn sometimes does deals on certain days in the winter. If they’re ever doing a promotion, I try to get there! It’s such a beautiful place to dine.

A favorite local musician.

Love Canon. They’re always fun, even if you’ve seen them more times than you can count, like I have!

A favorite local shopping destination.

Duo, of course! It’s the cutest little shop in town! (Yes, I’m biased.)
