About Ann Armstrong
I am a full professor at Northcentral University coaching/mentoring doctoral students in the writing of their dissertatons. Locally, I stay at this apartment when I am in town visiting my three daughters and 6 adorable grandchildren. I have a bichon-shih-tzu mix and invite you to bring a well behaved dog to our apartment. Thirty years ago I bought a home in Vermont because no one would rent to my dogs. I rented that house as long as I owned it, which was 25 years and found dog owners to be great rentors. I would love to learn more about you.
Ann Armstrong purchased this House in 1980
