I'm Cynthia

After a decade of travel to 150+ intentional communities, I'm living my community dream at an ecovillage in Vermont.

Honestly, I love going on community tours. I don't travel as much as I used to, so it's pure joy to support people like you on your journey. Whether you are setting out to find your next home or just want to have a grand adventure, I've picked up plenty of tricks and tools to make the planning process WAY easier. 

I hope you have a blast and learn a ton through your visits to communities. It's my job to make sure you feel supported and well resourced while you're out there. Think of me as your cheerleader on the sidelines as you venture out towards your community vision. You got this!
