Let’s see. Home is where your heart is, and despite a love of travel, my heart is in central Texas. I share my home with a silly cat who pounces on anything that moves and keeps me laughing. I’m a Foreign Service Officer currently posted in Washington, DC. Previously, I’ve taken a six-month economics course at the Foreign Service Institute and have been posted in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico; Ottawa, Canada; and Frankfurt, Germany.
