I grew up in Saint Paul, Minnesota. My husband is a painter and adjunct art professor at MCAD. We share a passion for art, travel, and collecting midcentury decorative furnishings. Outside of work, I enjoy gardening, riding my bicycle and watching Korean soap operas (“K-dramas”) with subtitles. My husband and I love Walt Disney World and make frequent visits a part of our travel. We have also had the great fortune and privilege to rescue and adopt a litter of 4 feral kittens this year who bring us great joy every day as they grow!
