Where are you from?
I am a California girl born and raised. I grew up in a small surfing town on the central coast, and attended UC Berkeley for college. I now run a non-profit mentoring program at a middle school. Yet as much grant writing and volunteer recruiting as I do, I like to say that at the end of the day you can’t wear a thesis! At work I try to make a palpable difference in the lives of our students, and at home I like to create for myself—knitting, sewing and working with my hands.
