I was born in San Diego, but moved to Sweden when I was 3. I spent my childhood in a city called Uppsala. It was a wonderful place to grow up. At the age of 19 I returned to the US to spend 1 year. But, as you can see, I'm still here.
I studied Sociology at the University of California, San Diego. Originally, my plan was to work with disadvantaged children as a counselor. So, for a while, I worked at a group home for adolescent boys on probation. However, I realized that I wanted to become a teacher and went back to school to get a teaching credential.
Today, I live with my husband and two daughters, Maya and Malea. Together we like to go to the beach, watch movies and have fun. We also have three pets, Remy, our dog and Hunter and Lucky, our cats.
