I am originally from Chicago, IL where my family still resides and I attended university. Since leaving Chicago in 2009, I have been living as an expatriate in South Korea. I moved to Korea to learn the language/culture via a scholarship program that also sponsored my master's degree. I have since been working at research and as a medical editor as well as part-time ESL teacher. My boyfriend and I plan to move back to the US in the summer of 2014 with solid plans to move to the San Francisco/Berkeley area. We love to travel and host our friends at our house! We stay with friends when we travel all the time and are very clean, conscious, friendly guests.
