I am in my mid-30s, live in Berkeley CA, and work as a General Pediatrician in a community health center. I recently spent a year living and working in South-Eastern Africa which was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life. I am now pursuing a degree in public health so that I can continue to work to improve health and wellbeing especially in underserved communities. I am an animal lover and even brought a dog back with me from Africa! I love to travel and recent trips have included taking a class in Barcelona, attending a music festival near Timbuktu, and touring the villages of Bhutan.
I am a laid-back, easy-going person, and am a flexible and spontaneous traveller. I work in Santa Rosa CA and sometimes need to spend the night to avoid the long drive back and forth to the Bay Area, so I anticipate using Airbnb for short term overnight stays.
