No office hours

I was born in Tokyo, raised in Louisiana, and schooled in Vermont before landing in California 17 years ago. In addition to teaching English at SRJC, I edit Made Local Magazine, freelance for local publications, and publish personal essays. When I'm not teaching or writing, I'm having dance parties with my two young daughters, trying out a new recipe, marching for justice and equality, or hiking, swimming, and biking on this gorgeous slice of green earth. My desire to see every corner of the globe has led me to 25 countries so far. I've done outdoor aerobics in Bangkok, scaled the jungle to reach Machu Picchu, dined with pink pelicans in Turkey, and survived the month of July in Cuba.
