Vegan Guest House-Tucson
I've been a strict vegan since Animals 101 held in Tempe in April 2005 and my husband and I are trying to create a veg-friendly atmosphere with our newly remodeled King-studio Guest House. Our goal is to provide a veg-friendly king-studio in Tucson to travelers/snowbirds, etc. looking to affirm and devote themselves to the veg life-style.
The Guest House rents for a minimum of 30 days (plus) and we believe we offer folks the chance to learn who they are again. Or to be adventuresome. Or to be one with nature. As long as they are vegan or very, very veggie. Here's the link to our site so you can see for yourself what we have to offer. I just finished building & publishing our web site and since this is my first attempt ever at doing so, I would like to think it's user-friendly.

"I have been a vegetarian 23 years and a vegan for 16.  I  am a state-licensed massage therapist and also an Intuitive Reflexologist.  I have been practicing for 20 years.  I know that there are many vegetarians and vegans out there who would prefer that an understanding soul work on them.  Plus, I am convinced that our frequencies vibrate higher BECAUSE of being vegetarian, thus allowing for more healing energies to be facilitated.  I go to the person's home, but am in the process of renting a room in a spa."

"If you'd like to keep your money in the animal-friendly community, I'm happy to baby-sit.  I love kids (especially those adorable veg*ns!) but have gotten pretty uncomfortable in the past when asked to prepare fun things like pepperoni pizza and ice cream for my clients.  Oy.  I'm willing to get to know your kids and make sure they like me during a complimentary shortish session, if you prefer.  I do live in East Mesa, but feel free to have anyone interested in a happy, responsible, non-phone using vegan babysitter email me at sillyjew4u@hotmail.com.  Stephanie"
