My name is Emily and my husband and I live in Los Angeles, CA. I am originally from Chicago, IL but moved to the Golden State in 2010 to take the next step with the love of my life. I am a full time music teacher to 525 elementary school students in East LA--teaching kids is a never-ending, hilarious adventure.
My husband, Rick, and I have always loved to travel. We met while teaching a music camp in AZ and have traveled all over the US together. We are excited to expand our international travels, and have a number of trips planned in the next year. Rick and I got married in September 2013, and are parents to two rescued animals--a cat named Shadow and a pitbull/terrier mix named Rigby.
One of my favorite hobbies is cooking--I find it to be extremely relaxing, and spend time every day in the kitchen. Rick and I are both vegan, and have an enormous love of fresh, delicious food. I also love to go to yoga class, read, craft, and sew. I regularly volunteer with the sorority I joined in college, providing leadership training and character development workshops to middle school and college-aged women.
While traveling, Rick and I love to wander and explore. We are very relaxed yet resourceful travelers--we love to use public transportation, eat local, and see the sights off the beaten path. We are low maintenance guests, very easy-going. I hope that you will consider having us!
