I hail from the Show Me State and am a proud lifelong resident of Saint Louis city. I love to travel internationally and domestically. I adore how diverse my city is and I explore its festivals, parks, and cultural sites as often as possible. I'm a sucker for any kind of ethnically diverse foods and can direct my guests to the best restaurants the city has to offer. I'm a novice knitter, an urban gardener, and most recently a chicken farmer. I'm a speech-language pathologist by trade, but who knows....if this urban garden of mine picks up perhaps I'll switch my occupation to Gardening Goddess!
