I'm a West Coast gal who loves living in this East Coast town and showing it off in whatever way possible. I love to eat (do it multiple times a day) and thanks to my food- and travel-writing hobby, I'm happy to share some of my favorite experiences for you to enjoy during your stay. Professionally, I have a business doing life coaching, freelance writing & photography, and professional consulting for primarily non-profits and small businesses. Personally, I strive for a holistic approach to living, including environmental and social consciousness -- to no extremes, however. I own a car and don't always eat organically & locally. I have a very active social and travel schedule, so more often then not, you'll have the place to yourself to relax in.
For those renting a room, my usual routine is working from home during the day and then out in the evenings for either social or professional engagements, so even if I am in town, you'll still likely have the place to yourself. Of course, I enjoy being social when we are there together, perhaps over a cup of tea or glass of wine.
And while you're visiting in DC and would like an upgrade from the usual random tourist photos, I offer my personal paparazzi services to guests at a discount while you tour around town.
