Hello Elaine, Kellin and classmates,

My name is Cheryl and I live at Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia. Before retiring in 2016, I spent 31 years working for a large school district in Northern Virginia. I have a background in Information Technology and education. I fell in love with Italy while on a Mediterranean cruise in 2008 and have been back as often as possible since then. Some of my interests include art, history, gardening, wine and food. My husband and I are also avid car enthusiasts. We both love to travel and I enjoy planning trips around our interests.

I am fortunate to have visited the Uffizi and the Accademia multiple times, as well as many of the beautiful churches and cathedrals throughout Italy. I saw the Last Supper in Milan and have toured the Vatican and Borghese Gallery in Rome. For the last three years we have attended the Mille Miglia, an historical re-enactment of a famous race. We enjoy following the vintage cars from town to town as they race around Italy. Each year we try to visit different towns along the route…but we still have a big bucket list!

I am looking forward to this class and hope to return to Italy with an increased understanding of the history and art of the Renaissance as well as some new “can’t miss” destinations.

Cheryl Ege
