Catherine (Kate) Lewis Harris
I call Portsmouth,NH my home. I moved to this seaside town 40 years ago. 35 of those years were shared with my wonderful husband, Jeff W.Ott, before he died from cancer in 2014.
Jeff was a Certified Arborist. He founded Northeast Shade Tree in 1978 and it continues today in capable hands. He was a highly respected teacher and mentor in his field. He was also so much more, but that would be a book.
Together,we shared a love of horse racing and owned half a dozen thoroughbreds that we saw race from coast to coast. We were also money pit, oops, I mean wooden boat enthusists, who plied the waters from the Seacoast to the Adirondacks for many years in our 1953 Lyman Islander. We enjoyed a variety of other pursuits together as well, but that would be book number two.
I work with Special Needs children in the Portsmouth School system. I am also a small business owner. My company,Northeast PHC Product Sales LLC, distributes mycorrhizal fungal products to Tree and Landscape industries in the Northeast. Book number three, a life alone, has yet to unfold.
