I have grown up on the move, having lived in Africa, China, and the U.S., as well as living in Ukraine for several years with my young family. I now reside in beautiful Madison, Wisconsin, where I am a therapist and social worker. I love to travel, as well as to experience the world through others in their stories and experiences. Madison is an amazing place - full of great people, places, and activities. I am a very resourceful and conscientious person and can offer lots of ways to help make your stay in Madison a good one!
