I've lived in the magical city of New Orleans, Louisiana for over 12 years (I'm originally from Minnesota.) During my time here, I have been a Rollergirl, performed burlesque, played with two bands, done improv, been part of a flash mob dance group, and most recently, joined one of New Orleans' all female Mardi Gras Krewes! For my job, I work closely with new teachers doing professional development and such so they can be the best teachers for our city's amazing kids. I own a small shotgun-style house in New Orleans where my partner and I and our 2 large dogs and very old cat live. I love to travel, although I don't do it often enough! I also like meeting new people, exploring new cultures, trying new things, and learning about different ways of life. I speak English and German.
