Hi! I'm a recent transfer from the east coast and loving the sunny weather, beaches and mountains of southern California! I was a criminal defense attorney on the east coast and now I am in a PhD program (I guess I figured I still needed more school...a bit crazy I realize). I LOVE to travel and have been to more than 50 countries. I worked in Namibia and Rwanda in 2009 and that experience encouraged me to pursue my current program. I love being outdoors. Scuba diving, hiking, mountain climbing are among my favs. Hope to meet some great people!
