Owner - Host

Riverview from Dinning Room Jennifer currently works as a Flight Attendant for the worlds largest airline and is based in San Francisco. One never quite knows where on the planet she may be at any given time. Sand River, Shanghai or Salt Lake....it's anybody's guess. She also loves to spend time on the island of Maui and has lived in Sand River since 1986. On days when she's a bit more "grounded" she enjoys working her Mary Kay business, which she began in 1987. She is also a "Road Warrior" for USA Today and loves commenting on various travel issues. Of all of the exotic locales visited around the globe "Sand River Retreat" holds a special place in her heart, for it was her late husband Roger's favorite place to be. Much of the home was built and designed by him. She's happy that her beloved abode doesn't have to sit empty and alone while she's off slinging sodas to the masses. Her hope is that you'll enjoy it as much as she does.

"E komo mai. Nou Ka hale!"
(A Hawaiian greeting welcoming you to "Come inside, the house is yours!")
