Young Christian Lady Looking to Rent a Room (Short-Term)


Emma Cheyne, who currently lives in south-eastern Michigan recently accepted a harvest winery position with Jackson Family Wines at the Cardinale estate in Oakville and is looking for housing. Her upcoming employment is seasonal, so she needs housing from early/mid-August through late November (possibly early December) for the harvest season. She’d be happy to rent a room from someone or rent a place with roommates.


Emma was homeschooled K-12 in Michigan and graduated with a B.A. in Liberal Arts and Culture from New Saint Andrews College in Moscow, ID (2016).


Please send me an e-mail if you are interested.
