My self-summary
"She's beautiful and she's got jokes."- Little brother. I finally felt understood by my family. :P

I can be stubborn and ambitious but have a huge soft spot for people I like. I know what my hard "no's" are but other than that, I'm willing to try almost anything once, given the right company.

I recently moved back to New York after 4 years of living in DC. I'm having a fun time exploring the city and doing a few different things work wise while I figure out my next career move.

Sometimes, the universe leaves me gifts through free things strangers leave on the street. Examples include: a stuffed giraffe I named helga, a cookbook of aphrodisiacs and others!
What I’m doing with my life
My last full-time job in DC was in international development. My professional interests include: gender, leadership development, education and sexual and reproductive health.

Some things on the bucket list include traveling to Mexico, working abroad, volunteering to teach yoga to trauma survivors and being an entrepreneur. In the meantime, I'm traveling when I can, cooking, baking, doing yoga, reading and adventuring.
