Vegetarian, Traveler, Writer, Artist

I work as a human resources professional in a public health consulting organization. While I do lots of technical writing at work (policies, grant applications, etc.), creative writing uses a completely different part of my brain. My passions include travel, food, writing and art. I have visited 64 countries, with residential stints in the Czech Republic following the fall of “The Wall” and more recently in Ethiopia, Rwanda, Bangladesh, and Mozambique. Currently I live on a beach in Massachusetts

Three of my travel essays (also available on my blog) have been published. One of my travel essays was longlisted. I published two award-winning blog posts about my wedding, available here:
