Personal bio:  I was raised with three older siblings in Caledonia, Illinois on a six acre parcel surrounded by corn fields and small trees.  I escaped the Midwest for the Pacific Northwest lifestyle when I moved to Bellingham, Washington for college at Western Washington University.  However, my restless personality needed another change of scenery and so I ventured into unknown territory called the East Coast.  While in Richmond, Virginia I worked in research for two years before starting my graduate studies.  I spend my free time exploring Richmond’s amazing restaurant scene and taking spontaneous road trips with my husband.
