About Us

Harriet B. Carrier founded Zimmara in 2011.  She previously coordinated marketing and events for The Globe Corner Bookstores. The store's Adventure Travel Lecture Series presented a remarkable range of international travel writers, naturalists, outdoor adventures, and photographers.  Among the series more recent events, evenings with writers and photographers - and the men and women they profiled (local farmers and shipbuilders) were notable in celebrating what is wonderfully unique about every region.  Harriet's prior consulting and working for financial institutions adds complementary business and management experience.

Zimmara is named for a mountain in Sicily.  A day hike to Zimmara's peak offered views of abandoned farm buildings, grazing sheep, and nearby mountains - prompting thoughts of earlier times and new adventures.  The rare opportunity to hike for hours without seeing anyone else was memorable.
