My self-summary
I'm a warm, lively person who places great value on imagination. I have close relationships with my friends and family and enjoy brunch, parks, antiquing, karaoke, 8-bit Nintendo, nature programs, ethnic restaurants of all sorts, middle grade fiction, and sleeping in. After growing up in the Bay Area, I went to college in the Midwest, studied abroad in Nepal, and spent a few months in rural England. More recently, I lived in the city for ten years and moved to Oakland in June 2015.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm just starting a new job as the mental health counselor at a K-8 charter school in East Oakland. I have master's degrees in teaching and counseling psychology, and my main work interest is in helping elementary schoolers develop socially and emotionally.

Storytelling, conflict resolution, costume contests, giving toasts, being a friend, and engaging in conversations about race, class, and gender.
The first things people usually notice about me
