I have an appreciation for community, both on the local and global scale. I enjoy learning about different cultures and also observing overlaps and similarities between them.  I also enjoy learning new languages and view them as a bridge to communicating and connecting with others.  I have intermediate proficiency in both Spanish and French.

I am originally from Northern Virginia, just outside of Washington DC.   Throughout my childhood, I travelled quite a bit, living overseas in Frankfurt, Germany; Abidjan, Ivory Coast; and Rome, Italy.  



After undergrad, I moved to Los Angeles and also travelled to Brazil as part of my MBA program. Recently, I visited Jamaica for the first time and enjoyed experiencing more of my culture, as my father immigrated to the US from Jamaica at an early age.

And the travel continues! I am looking forward to upcoming trips to Mexico City and Peru.

In my free time, I enjoy outdoor and creative activities like, Photography/Art, Running, Hiking
