A little about me....
Hometown: I was born in California near L.A., but I moved up here to Bothell when I was 5 years old, so I consider Bothell to be my hometown! It’s changed quite a lot over the years. It used to be much more of a ‘small town’ with not much more than a few shops here and there. Now it’s more like a growing suburban college town!
Studied / Lived Abroad: I’ve lived in Japan a few times as a student and have studied and worked in China for a total of about 3 years. These are some of the most valuable experiences I’ve had in my life and I’ll never forget the friends I made and good times I experienced!
A few of my hobbies: One thing I LOVE to do is travel! Whether it’s near or far, by car or plane, there’s nothing I enjoy more than seeing new sites, visiting places from my past, and experiencing the little things that make each place unique!
Something I Love About Seattle: The summers in Seattle are near perfect! Great weather, long days, and lots to do! Seattle summers really can’t be beat!
My Favorite Apps: I pretty much enjoy any app that lets me and my children make goofy faces!
My Favorite Store: My favorite place to shop lately is The Home Depot! We just bought a new house and I’m really enjoying making little improvements here and there, so Home Depot has surprisingly been a frequent stop for me!
My First Job: While my first job after college was teaching English in China, my first “career” job was at the front desk for a department at Bellevue College. This began my career in higher education! I was actually their second choice, but the first choice refused the position! Quite a surprise for me!
I bet you never knew that I..... When I was in college, I hiked to the top of Mount Fuji in Japan! And the hike was during the night so we could see the sunrise from the top!
