A bit more about me...

After growing up in Santa Barbara, I moved away for university and graduate school, and spent time in San Francisco. I am happy to be back in my hometown with my husband and two children. I spend my spare time with family and friends, enjoying the outdoors, delicious food, traveling, and coastal sailing. I take every opportunity to experience different parts of the world from a sailboat, where life becomes simple and everything becomes meaningful. I believe in the importance of finding balance, and strive for it in my everyday life.
