I'm a California girl at heart. I grew up in Los Angeles and lived on the East Coast and in Latin America, but once I moved to the Bay Area for graduate school, I knew I'd found my home. I enjoy spending time exploring this great city, from parks to music venues to taco shops, but also love to get out on the coast or up in the mountains. I deeply value my relationships with family and friends. I'm an open, honest person, someone you can count on, someone you can laugh with, and always willing to try something new.
