Born and raised in Southern California, I am a stay at home mom to La Jolla Girl (5 years old) and have been married to La Jolla Dad for 10 years. I initially moved to La Jolla to attend University of California, San Diego. After graduation, I worked in finance, met my lawyer husband in a Del Mar bar, and then we moved overseas to London and Hong Kong for 7 years. We’re back living in La Jolla, a seaside community in San Diego, CA.
I cover local topics, but since I have readers from all over the world, I also write about food, helpful hints, housekeeping, luxury travel, wine and parenting. There’s a little something for everyone and I learn every time I write. I particularly enjoy travel writing–it’s the ex-expat in me still longing for planes, trains and luxury hotels.

The Book: Flying With Kids
I wrote a short book about flying with young kids. As an expat, I had to fly my daughter transpacific multiple times per year. I’ve included every tip I have, gear recommendations, how to handle jet lag and much more. Read more about flying with kids.
