I grew up in a medium-sized suburb on the East Coast called Columbia, MD. Yearning to learn what was beyond the culture of malls and big box stores, I've since embarked on several study abroad experiences - in Spain, Panama, China, and Israel - each time seeking to learn the true depth of the culture and really get to know people rather than just scratching the surface and sticking only to tourist attractions. On most of these trips I also brought my violin or acquired the use of one while there, and learned local folk tunes. I also play piano and cello, and I dabble in photography and painting.
Now I live on the West Coast, in San Francisco, CA, and absolutely love it here. I got my bachelor's degree in International Studies and Spanish and a Master's in Public Health, and at work and in life I seek both large and small ways to make the world a better place. I'm a writer and librarian for a government website that supports staff at programs for runaway and homeless youth transitioning to self-sufficiency, teen pregnancy prevention/sexual health promotion, and family violence prevention/services. I'm inclined to see the positives in any situation and the good in people, and I highly value thoughtfulness and respectfulness in myself and others.
When it comes to traveling I like to plan as much as possible and then be totally open to spontaneously changing them, making the most of each moment, and looking back on a fantastic trip that may or may not have stuck to the original itinerary. :-)
