"I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it." Audrey Hepburn

Born and raised in Northern California I was raised to have a passion for culture and the humanities. I have a deep rooted love for anything vintage from cinema to design, values and ideas. If I could travel the world and absorb language, tradition and culture on a whim I would in a heartbeat.

However, since one has to earn a living I have discovered my passion and ability to work with children with special needs. I am currently an ABA therapist for young children with Autism. To know them is to love them and I love every child that I work with. Each has their own magical traits that test your patience at the same time tugging on your heart.

Someone else that tugs at my heart, and often, is my husband Josh. He is my Prince that has rescued and healed my heart after so many toads had chipped away at it. He shows me unconditional love and embraces me as a whole, flaws and all. I love being his wife and thank above for bringing him to me after all this time.

I love to cook, read, shop (even more so after losing 50 lbs since January). I'm a huge fan of the SF Giants, Bravo TV, any programming involving food, and spending time with friends and family.
