Bay Area native currently living in the East Bay with my husband, our Mini Schnauzer, and three chickens. I consider myself lucky to be in a profession where I am constantly learning, being challenged, and able to work with amazing people. When I’m not in the office, I love traveling and exploring places, especially by walking—it’s the best way to experience a place!
