Rhiannon loves to lose herself in all things creative. She enjoys writing, painting, live music, traveling, sports, being outdoors, exploring, playing, spirituality, and energy work.  She has a BA in English and a MS in Occupational Therapy with a pediatric focus. Rhiannon just had her first novel published. It is a memoir with a twist called, Lark and the Loon, available wherever books are sold. Rhiannon grew up on Spa Creek in downtown Annapolis. Home for Rhiannon will always be the sound of the halyards hitting the masts on a breezy day, a pile of crabs saturated in Old Bay, raft-ups with friends as kids cannonball off of the stern, and time with family and friends, in, on, and around the Chesapeake Bay. After some adventures and experiences elsewhere, she is back in Annapolis, enjoying it with her husband, their five lovely and lively children, and their black lab, McNasby. Rhiannon feels so lucky to be able to raise her family in this wonderful town and is excited to share her love of this area through Visit Annapolis.
