I'm a lover of gardening, coffee and Jesus. I homeschool my 4 kids here in our home and neighborhood and love to learn. Our family likes to take adventures and learn by doing and exploring. I have traveled all over the world and enjoy meeting people, my kids do too.
I've lived in Philadelphia for the last 10 years and love the history, museums and culture of this city. Before that I lived in Japan, Iowa and North Carolina.
